Directed by Dorothy Arzner free pdf Dorothy Arzner was the exception in Hollywood film history - the one woman who succeeded as a director, in a career that spanned three decades. In Part One, Dorothy Arzner's film career her work as a film editor to her directorial debut, to her departure from Hollywood in 1943 is documented, with particular attention to Arzner's roles as "star-maker" and "woman's director." In Part Two, Mayne analyzes a number of Arzner's films and discusses how feminist preoccupations shape them, from the women's communities central to "Dance, Girl, Dance" and "The Wild Party" to critiques of the heterosexual couple in "Christopher Strong" and "Craig's Wife". Part Three treats Arzner's lesbianism and the role that desire between women played in her career, her life, and her films.
