Episode 111. Dorothy Arzner’s Due

Dorothy Arzner is one of the largest names in the history of Hollywood’s female directors, so today Alex and Jonathan look at the themes and relationships in her films Get Your Man (1927), Merrily We Go to Hell (1932), and Dance, Girl, Dance (1940). We talk about how romance differs in Arzner’s films from other directors’ work, how her films relate to the production code throughout her career, and ways her career has influenced directors and films to come.
