The Crowd Roars (16-Apr-1932)

Director: Howard Hawks

Writers: Howard Hawks; Kubec Glasmon; John Bright; Seton I. Miller; Nevin Busch

Keywords: Action/Adventure, Auto Racing

When a race car champion returns home, he finds to his great dismay that his kid brother has also taken up the sport. Cliché-laden and highly formulaic, though one of the earliest auto-racing films of the talkie era. Some good vintage racing sequences. Remade as Indianapolis Speedway (1939), even to the point of using some of the same footage.
