Storyline

The first talkie was directed by Alice Guy, the first color film was produced by Lois Weber, who directed more than 300 films over 10 years. Frances Marion wrote screenplays for the Hollywood Star Mary Pickford and won two Oscars, Dorothy Arzner was the most powerful film director in Hollywood. And what do all of them have in common? They are all women and they have all been forgotten. Incredibly, it also took until 2010 for the first woman, Kathryn Bigelow, to win the Oscar for Best Director. Even if underrepresented women have always played a big part in Hollywood and it is this part of the film history left untold that this documentary sets out to uncover. Written by anonymous

Documentary worth seeing !
26 March 2017 | by cekadahSee all my reviews

A nice documentary detailing the surprising fact that many women were on the ground floor when Hollywood was being founded during the early years of the 20th Century.

This documentary spans the post World War 1 years to the early 1930's. This period is when the movie capital of the world "Hollywood" was becoming a big business and changing the entertainment landscape in the USA.

What an eye opener to see the faces and names of truly talented women who set the foundation for what the American film industry became. Watch it for the information and the facts on women in the industry in the past and today.
