The stories Alice Guy Blaché put on film are the subject of this book. It contains725 synopses including 360 translated from the original French.This book is not a filmography, or a critical review of Alice's films, but a long drink of her stories. It was Alice's love of story that led her to start putting themon film in 1896. This collection may be compared to looking at Alice's bookshelf or unpacking a trunkin her attic. Since she wrote, or had a hand in writing, almost all of the stories she helped put on film, these stories tell us something about her or, at the very least, the times in which she lived.
Janelle Dietrick graduated from U. C. Berkeley with a degree in modern European history. She is the author of three books about Alice Guy Blaché; Alice & Eiffel, A New History of Early Cinema and the Love Story Kept Secret for a Century, Illuminating Moments, The Films of Alice Guy Blaché, and a novel, Mademoiselle Alice.
