Tiger Shark is a 1932 American pre-Code film directed by Howard Hawks and starring Edward G. Robinson, Richard Arlen and Zita Johann. The movie was made the same year as Scarface, which is widely acknowledged to be the director's best film of the early sound era. The general storyline was repeated several times in subsequent films, most notably Manpower with Marlene Dietrich and George Raft, in which Robinson plays the same role, only as a power line worker.
