ReFocus: The Films of Delmar Daves

From Destination Tokyo (1943) to Youngblood Hawke (1964), among many other titles, few filmmakers created as unique a body of work in the United States as Delmar Daves (1904-1977), but few filmmakers have been as critically overlooked in existing scholarly literature. Daves is often regarded as an embodiment of the self-effacing craftsmanship of classical and post-War Hollywood, which helps explain his relative neglect by film critics and scholars. In the words of Kent Jones, in an essay for the recent Criterion Collection release of 3:10 to Yuma (1957), Daves was a "casualty of auteurism."
