Screens Fri, June 12, 2015, 8 PM and Sun, June 14, 2015, 4 PM
DIRECTED BY DOROTHY ARZNER
USA, 1940, 35mm, 90 min.
Pioneering director Dorothy Arzner brings a specifically female perspective to this backstage story of two dancers in New York, the high-class, ballet trained Maureen O’Hara and the bump-and-grind specialist Lucille Ball. This film was started by another (male) director, who fell ill and was replaced by Arzner, whose feel for what was then called “women’s stories” is unparalleled. Sweet, smart, tough and funny.
