Dance, Girl, Dance
Sunday 1st June
Film at 7:45pm // Doors open an hour before
(dir. Dorothy Arzner, USA, 1940)
Two members of a dance troupe from opposite ends of the spectrum fall for the same man when they unexpectedly find themselves out of a job. What promises to be a stock, vaudevillean gold-diggers story develops into a more interesting bird’s eye view of showbiz status quo; Dorothy Arzner’s career path from script typist to director (amongst an almost exclusively male pool in Hollywood at the time) provided her with a wealth of first-hand experience on which to draw.
