Alice Guy Blache by Emmanuelle Gaume with Alexandra Lamy
Why a movie? Guy-Blaché is the definition of an industry pioneer, rising first through Gaumont Studios, then by becoming the founder and head of Solax Studios. By all accounts a cisgender woman, she nonetheless challenged masculine stereotypes, making big meaningful moves like casting women into then-typically male professions, like magicians or dog-trainers, and taking on the masculine roles herself, dressing as a man and stepping in front of the camera. Today, as we continue to mold our perspectives on how we conceptualize gender and sexuality in mainstream artr, Guy-Blaché’s story is both a feminist rendering of an inherently masculine system, and a subversion of how women were expected to perform both on- and off-screen

Madame Alice Blaché, the presiding genius of the Solax Company. She is a remarkable personality, combining a true artistic temperament with executive ability and business acumen. Every detail of the making of a Solax picture comes directly under her personal supervision. She takes full responsibility for the Solax product… her judgement is hardly to be questioned.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h3BpSdili0 Le tango (1905) - Dir. Alice Guy con Amalia Molina (Sevilla, 1881-Barcelona, 1956) fue la tonadillera más importante del primer cuarto del siglo XX. Conquistó y embelesó a todo tipo de públicos y triunfó en España, Hispanoamérica, Estados Unidos —llegó a actuar en Broadway durante 8 años seguidos—, Londres y París. Las gacetillas que glosaban sus actuaciones eran siempre un continuo piropo. La llamaron de todo: “chiquita de cuerpo, pero grande en gracia y gentileza”, “https://www.facebook.com/aliceguyblache/”, “canta con mucho ángel, viste irreprochablemente y presenta su trabajo con verdadero lujo”, “menudita, morenilla, graciosa y simpática, de ojos habladores y de rostro expresivo e inteligente” y, como entonces se decía, “reina de los cantos regionales”, “reina del regionalismo” y “reina del couplet”.http://elecodelamemoria.blogspot.com.es/…/amalia-molina.html
