Alice Guy-Blaché is recognized as the first woman filmmaker, going back to an 1896 silent short, but her career remains unsung in the history of cinema.

  1. Thank you for this post, Donna. I didn’t know this wonderful woman. I saw her film about Jesus Christ: spectacular scenes, good director.
    Thank you. Have a beautiful day.

    • First time for me also. Hope to find something by her on streaming services like Fandor or MHZ Choice. Thanks for your visit, which contributes to a beautiful day. I wish the same for you.
