      Sponsor: Berkeley Art Museum
      Although he wasnt credited as director, Hawks is widely acknowledged to have had a strong hand in this oft-remade science fiction classic, and the films brisk, cross-talking style and themes of professionalism and responsibility are undeniably Hawksian. At an isolated Arctic research station, a strange craft is discovered under the ice, its pilot an intelligent carrot whose rapid reproduction threatens not just the base but the entire planet. Hawks focuses less on the creature itself than on the tiny communitys reactions to it, with new allegiances forming and rifts opening as wonder crosses over into terror. Juliet Clark
