DOROTHY ARZNER (ca. 1930-37) Set of 3 photos$1,250.00
Set of three (3) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still 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 Dorothy 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.
