Dance, Girl, Dance Geregisseerd door Dorothy Arzner
These are the corners where people eke out their living, and filmmakers Dorothy Arzner and Clare Denis depict this eking in drastically different styles – the lucidity of classical Hollywood filmmaking versus the oblique poetic strategies of the European art film. What sets these films apart is how they depart from the traditions they emerge out of, creating something bold and elusively new.

There are plenty of laughs in Arzner’s movie, especially during Bubbles’ ribald numbers, but Dance, Girl, Dance never loses sight of the important sacrifices — and necessary compromises — women make in pursuit of artistic careers.

Its subject really is dancing. Arzner films it with fascination and enthusiasm, and the choreography is marked by the point of view of the spectators and the dancers’ awareness that they’re being watched. Arzner—one of the few women directors in Hollywood—shows women dancers enduring men’s slobbering stares. The very raison d’être of these women’s performances is to titillate men, and that’s where the story’s two vectors intersect—art versus commerce and love versus lust.
