"There are not all that number of mature leading men around", he said in a 1961 interview. "There seems to be a generation missing. I think people quit going into the acting profession.

And then when the war was over it was difficult for them to get back into the theatre."<ref>{{cite news|title=Hawkins, 'No Idol,' Is Sought by Hollywood|last=Finnigan|first= Joseph|newspaper= Los Angeles Times|date=6 July 1961|page= 28}}</ref>
 
He was in another big hit in ''[[Lawrence of Arabia (film)|Lawrence of Arabia]]'' (1962), as [[General Allenby]]. ''[[Rampage (1963 film)|Rampage]]'' (1963) was less distinguished, but ''[[Zulu (1964 film)|Zulu]]'' (1964) gave him a good role as a cowardly priest; it was, however, clearly a supporting part, and Hawkins' days as a star seemed to be over.
 
He had supporting parts in ''[[The Third Secret (film)|The Third Secret]]'' (1964), ''[[Guns at Batasi]]'' (1964) and ''[[Lord Jim (1965 film)|Lord Jim]]'' (1965). ''[[Masquerade (1965 film)|Masquerade]]'' (1965) gave him a lead opposite [[Cliff Robertson]].<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.theartsdesk.com/film/here-they-come-again-zulu-50|title='Here they come again': Zulu at 50|work=theartsdesk.com}}</ref> He made some appearances on US TV: "To Bury Caesar" with [[Pamela Brown (actress)|Pamela Brown]] in 1963 and "Back to Back" for ''[[The Bob Hope Theatre]]''. He also appeared in ''[[Judith (1966 film)|Judith]]'' (1966), and ''[[The Poppy Is Also a Flower]]'' (1966).
