Dir. Howard Hawks. 1932, 80 mins. 35mm. With Edward G. Robinson, Zita Johann, Richard Arlen. Mike Mascarenhas (Edward G. Robinson), a blustery, socially awkward San Diego trawler captain with a hook for a left hand (which he lost to a shark in a fishing accident), is getting married. One problem: Mike’s bride (Zita Johann) has eyes for Mike’s crewman and friend (Richard Arlen). Tiger Shark is noted for Hawks’s expressive use of the Monterey coast locations.
