~ The Hollywood Story of Dorothy Arzner ~

Marilyn Freeman’s Sophisticated is an imaginative postmodern biopic about the wildly unique, stylishly handsome, Dorothy Arzner — Hollywood’s lone female film director to sustain a successful career through the 1920s, 30s and early 40s.  She launched the careers of movie legends – Lucille Ball, Maureen O’Hara, Rosalind Russell, Katharine Hepburn, Claudette Colbert and others. Credited with directing 16 features, mostly box office hits, Arzner was exceptionally accomplished in spite of the odds and remarkably forgotten in Hollywood history – until now.
