A Classy Broad

The fascinating documentary about Marcia Nasatir,  a Jewish girl from San Antonio who shattered Hollywood’s glass ceiling by becoming a film producer and the first woman vice-president of a film studio. Even with her extraordinary talent, Marcia needed to fight with and outwit her male detractors her whole way to the top. And she’s still doing it!
