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

Le Coq de la Gaumont RARE!



Le Coq de la Gaumont RARE!
Le coq dressé de Cook et Rilly
l faut peut-être voir, dans ce film, une allusion facétieuse d'Alice Guy au principal concurrent de Gaumont, Pathé dont l'emblème à l'époque était un coq.
Un coq sur un piédestal orné du "G" à la marguerite de la compagnie Gaumont prend la pose et chante à plusieurs reprises.
Au tout début du film, on aperçoit la manche de l'assistante qui pose le coq sur le piédestal
