Anybody's Woman (Arzner, 1930): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 8.30pm

This 35mm presentation, which is part of the Dorothey Arzner season at BFI Southbank, also screens on February 9th. Full details here.

BFI introduction:
Arzner always insisted on the importance of the screenwriter. Her collaborations with Zoe Akins demonstrated the value and potency of the relationship between director and writer. Anybody’s Woman tells the story of broken-hearted lawyer Neil and cynical burlesque performer Pansy, who drunkenly marry and decide to make their mismatched marriage work. This quintessentially pre-Code film marked the second collaboration for the director, writer and star.

Here (and above) is an introduction to Dorothy Arzner's film career.
