Summary
Alic Guy-Blache was probably the first person (of either sex) to direcct a narrative film. Her first film as she remembered it as an 1896 minute-long tale called la Fee aux Choux (The cabbage fairy) ; Lois Weber made films that looked deeply into society and behavior. For a time in the mid-1910s, she was both the most distinctive of auteurs and the highest salaried director in Hollywood.
