Storyline

Youngblood Hawke is a truck driver from Kentucky who comes to New York City to become a hot-shot writer. Almost immediately, he meets editor Jeanne Green. She sees great promise in Hawke's writing and falls for the handsome Kentuckian while helping him put together his first book deal. His first novel is moderately successful, but it is soon transformed into a Broadway play by a has-been stage actress. Jeanne discovers that Youngblood has an effect on a great many women, so she takes a job at a new publishing company. Soon after, Hawke's second novel is heralded and he becomes the toast of the town. He then has an affair with a married socialite. His third novel bombs and is also panned by critics...Hawke's financial state declines into hard times. Returning to Kentucky to work on his next book, he contracts pneumonia before realizing that his first editor Jeanne was his ideal woman. Written by thustlebird

Hawke & Roarke - together for time
27 August 2004 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Youngblood Hawke is a film treasure. The plot is timeless and the movie flows with the grace of an Olympic skater. This movie, along with The Fountainhead give us two of the strongest and most creative heroes of our day - Howard Roarke (Gary Cooper) and Youngblood Hawke (James Franciscus. Both of these individuals express through their art form (Roarke the architect and Hawke the author) their passion and individuality and allow us to dream of overcoming temptation and triumphing in the end. The performance of both leading actors stand the test of time and are worth viewing again and again. The supporting casts are outstanding and the two authors of original texts Herman Wouk and Ann Rayn are without peer.
