About a year ago, the National Museum of Women in the Arts ran a series
(well, they called it a series, it was only three films) called "Women of Film Noir." The emphasis was on women behind the scenes in the movie business, but they didn't feature a single female director. The films were: Gilda (written by Marion Parsonnet and Jo Eisinger, produced by Virginia Van Upp), Phantom Lady (written and produced by Joan Harrison, her first solo film after working with Hitchcock; love that deranged drumming scene with Elisha Cook, Jr) and My Name Is Julia Ross (written by Muriel Roy Bolton).
