Product Description


"Drawing extensively on archival research, the collections yields startling accounts of women's multiple roles as early producers, directors, writers, stars, and viewers. It also engages urgent questions about cinema's capacity for presenting a stable visual field, often at the expense of racially, sexually, or classmarked bodies."--Mev Miller, Feminist Academic Press Column "[T]his book covers rich ground... [F]ilm historians and feminist media scholars will want to own this book. In addition, the book provides links between the escape of women from the cultural constraints of nineteenth century and the evolution of film in the twentieth. In doing so, it provides a perspective from which ideological inquires may be framed."--Mark Goodman, Journal of Film and Video "[A] richly detailed and kaleidoscopic vision of gender as filtered through the lens of the early film industry..."--Linda S. Coleman, The Journal of American Culture "Every reader will find their own favourites in this smorgasbord... If your own interest in early cinema is already established, you will find something stimulating and provocative here, in the wide range of topics and approaches on offer. If you are just entering this territory, this collection provides a rich selection to whet your appetite for further explorations."--Ina Bertrand, Screening the Past Also reviewed in CHOICE. Listed in Film Comment, Women's Review of Books, and boundary 2.
