DOROTHY ARZNER (ca. 1930-1937)


 Three vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) photos, USA. One photo has diagonal creases near bottom and other signs of light handling, VERY GOOD-; the other two are linen-backed keybook photos, NEAR FINE.

In the 1930s Arzner was the only woman directing movies in the US. “It was no secret that Arzner was a lesbian.” (Mann, p. 74.) As in these photos, she always appeared in “mannish” attire, with a short haircut. Mayne, Directed by Dorothy Arzner.
