Arzner was reared in Los Angeles, where her family owned a Hollywood restaurant frequented by actors and directors. After graduation from high school in , she studied medicine for two years at the University of Southern California , but, disillusioned with the medical profession, she dropped out of school and was hired as a typist for Famous Players—Lasky Corporation later Paramount Pictures. Arzner quickly moved up from typing scripts to cutting and editing film. By she had edited 52 films as chief editor for Realart Studio, a subsidiary of Paramount. In the mids she worked as an editor and a screenwriter for director James Cruze , serving in both roles uncredited on his opus about the merchant marine , Old Ironsides. Arzner subsequently bargained with Paramount for a chance to direct her first picture, Fashions for Women , which was released in The film, which starred Bow, was also innovative in that it placed greater emphasis on female friendship and camaraderie than on the usual male-female love story. During the s Arzner remained the only woman director in Hollywood.

The namesake of a prestigious Directors Guild of America award whose winners include such filmmakers as Barbara Kopple and Ava DuVernay , Dorothy Arzner was the first female member of the DGA, and would remain its only female member for decades. As the director of 16 feature films as well as several films for which she did not receive credit , Arzner was not only far and away the most prolific female director in the Hollywood studio system from the s to the early s, but also the first woman to direct a sound film and the only female director to successfully transition from silent to sound cinema. A feminist before the term existed, Arzner was as transgressive as her characters, defying both the gender norms of her industry and — as an openly gay woman — the norms of sexual orientation in a ruthlessly puritanical society. A rebel from the outset, Arzner launched her first assault on a traditionally male bastion when she enrolled in medical school at USC, before dropping out to join the volunteer ambulance corps when the United States entered the First World War.

I, too, thought little of Bow when I was younger, although the rumors hadn't reached me yet mostly because I ignored much of what was said about a lot of movie stars, I had other movie interests. I did finally read a few of the scurrilous ones, and still thought of her as mostly a static image or a grainy flapper. I finally saw "Wings" and somewhat later, "It" and some more of her films in better copies, and one thing I realized quickly was she moved like no other on film. The camera loved her when she moved, she communicated things through movement more than with her expressions, she made complicated steps look natural, her whole body had that ability, and she certainly didn't need sound to do either. I still look at her stills and they're only stills as before; they're missing something for me: she was extraordinarily gifted in front of a camera, like no one else before or since.
