“There are plenty of laughs in Arzner’s movie, but DANCE, GIRL, DANCE never loses sight of the important sacrifices — and necessary compromises — women make in pursuit of artistic careers.”
The Village Voice

“Ms. Arzner captures with peculiar force the emotional reality of the women, independently and in their relationship as roommates and rivals.”
—Molly Haskell

Pioneering director Dorothy Arzner brings a specifically female perspective to this backstage story of two dancers in New York: the high-class, ballet trained Maureen O’Hara and the bump-and-grind specialist Lucille Ball.
