6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Undetermined and French and held by 39 libraries worldwide
This collection looks at pioneering French filmmakers from the Gaumont studio, with extensive examples of their work. Few individual artists have exerted as profound an influence upon the evolution of cinema as Alice Guy (later known as Guy-Blaché). With this collection of more than 60 films, culled from the world's leading archives and carefully mastered, Guy may no longer be seen as a "woman filmmaker." These films, produced by Guy for Gaumont before she moved to the U.S., reveal her to be an unqualified pioneer of motion pictures.

Making an American citizen ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1994 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
"In the land of freedom, a Russian peasant learns he must work and not treat his wife like a slave. With the Statue of Liberty in the background, he is told he cannot abuse his wife anymore: a real American forces him to take the luggage from her and carry it to their new home. After several incidents in which Ivan continues to abuse her, he is finally sentenced to six months of penal servitude by a jury of American men--with a male judge and male witnesses. Ivan finally learns how to behave as a proper American on a chain gang. By the time he leaves the care of the state, he has been 'completely Americanized' and tenderly embraces his wife. Now he works on the farm while she cooks the meals. Ivan is depicted using a melodramatic acting style, and, unlike the other character, he openly looks at the camera. By the time he is Americanized, his gestures are more restrained and he ceases to acknowledge the camera. Ivan has thus been 'socialized' on a number of levels, in terms of cinematic conventions as well as marital behavior. In key respects, this is not a feminist film: men teach Ivan the American way, while the wife's proper place is shown to be in the home, in her proper domestic sphere. Long takes and a relatively static camera are used. In comparison to Griffith's films of this same period, the differences in cinematic style are remarkable"--Videocassette notes by Charles Musser.
