  • Meet Dorothy Arzner

 

American. 3 January 1897 – 1 October 1979 -Dorothy Arzner Straight Rye Whiskey

Dorothy Arzner made history when she became the first woman to direct a sound-synchronized film, Manhattan Cocktail(1928). While this film is now lost, its success led executives at Paramount Pictures––the studio where Arzner worked and one of the “Big Five” during Hollywood’s Golden Age––to entrust her to direct a string of what were called “women’s pictures.” She secured her reputation by deviating from the classic formulas of Hollywood storylines, and instead portrayed women through complex characterizations rather than as cinematic stereotypes. It was for this reason that feminist film scholars of the 1970s adopted Arzner as a living emblem of their theories, a categorization she rejected saying, “I want my work to be judged on its merits. Intelligence has no sex.”
Arzner had over 15 films to her directing credit by 1943––launching the careers of many actors including Katharine Hepburn and Rosalind Russell––and about a decade later joined the faculty at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film, and Television, one of her students being a young Francis Ford Coppola. Great Women Spirits acknowledges the trailblazing convictions of Dorothy Arzner with the additional honor of releasing its Straight Rye Whiskey in her name.
