Alice Guy Blaché (1873-1968), the world’s first female moviemaker, wrote and directed over 1,000 films from 1896 to 1920, working in a wide variety of genres. This program includes Babies from Cabbages (1902), The Detective’s Dog (c. 1912), and perhaps the first adaptation of Poe’s The Pit and the Pendulum (1913).
