In that time he worked on such films as Leo McCarey?s ?The Awful Truth? (1937), Howard Hawks? South American set ?Only Angels Have Wings? (1939) and his rapid fire comedy classic the following year ?His Girl Friday?, most of the Blondie B-movies, Alexander Hall?s turn of the century fantasy ?Here Comes Mr Jordan?
