It is with hesitation that I offer up a doll of Alice Guy-Blache to this project. She was a pioneer in the infant film industry. Her films pushed the narrative and story over pure movement. She asked her actors to act natural on camera. She owned her own movie studio, worked with Charlie Chaplin and was revered by Alfred Hitchcock.
However, she is largely forgotten today. Many of here thousands of films (large and small) are gone. With the film industry dominated by male directors, I believe that it is important to point out that this French woman who lived and died in New Jersey, invented the director's job.
