An inspiring history of women and the movies

Women have been in the film business since the flickering early days of its existence, and this lavishly illustrated book documents just that.

Hollywood: Her Story, An Illustrated History of Women and the Movies starts with Alice Guy-Blaché, a French filmmaker who made her first film in 1896. It provides information on approximately 1200 women who have added their skills and creativity in the many areas of expertise needed to make a movie.

Perfect for anyone who enjoys the movies, this photo-treasury of women and film is not to be missed!
