Be Natural original story of Alice Guy Blaché by herself with Bessie Love

Be Natural original story of Alice Guy Blaché by herself with Bessie Love


You could spend hours searching for the first female director and studio owner somewhere between essentials Hugh Grant and Jake Gyllenhaal in something that calls itself The New Biographical Dictionary of Film and never come across the name Alice Guy. So I’m not surprised I’d never heard of her. My shadow-life film education has always been informal and haphazard, growing in the cracks between classes and deadlines, events and obligations (and sometimes instead of them), with all the focused appetite and short abandonment of a yellow lab. It was only a year ago that I sought a verbal Virgil to guide me through the eleven circles of The American Cinema, and we never quite made it to the 19th century. At the moment, the only thing I’ve read about Alice Guy is the article that introduced me to her name—and that of Léonce Perret—Dave Kehr’s NYT essay on the 7-disc Gaumont set (abridged to 3 for us Region 1 philistines) about the early days of the French studio, likely the oldest still in operation.

I'm not a total neophyte—I'm familiar with Dickson and Heise and Reynaud and George Albert Smith, not to mention Lumière and Méliès—but 64 shorts in chronological order is somewhat more helpfully curated than Youtube. Going through the Gaumont discs is a trail-blazing journey from 19th century action flicks, by which I mean those pre-narrative actualities about the basic actions of everyday life (like “The Kiss” and “Fencing”) to early 1900s dramatic narrative shorts. It’s not just a filmmaker growing. It’s cinema growing >>>>.http://bnowalk.blogspot.com.es/2012/07/summer-of-silents-2-real-3d-of-alice-guy.html
