The birthday boy for May 30 is Howard Hawks.
I’ve never really thought about it before, but I associate Hawks with two films: the screwball comedy “Bringing Up Baby” and the Marilyn Monroe classic “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” The former film has a sort of ADD quality to it that makes it seem like a Gemini film, delightfully flitting from screwball scene to screwball scene. The latter film stars the most iconic Gemini actress in the history of cinema.
Hawks, however, didn’t work in a single genre. In fact, there are very few directors who worked successfully in as many genres as Hawks. Yes, Gemini can be the ADD sign, but their lack of a focus can also become one of their greatest strengths. Hawks is proof of that. Besides Sagittarius native Steven Spielberg, I can’t name another film director who has a wider repertoire than Hawks. And while Sagittarians thrive on expanding their horizons, Geminis just can’t stay in one place for too long. It all makes sense, doesn’t it?
