The stories Alice Guy Blaché put on film are the subject of this book. It contains 725 synopses including 360 translated from the original French. This book is not a filmography or a critical review of Alice's films, but a long drink of her stories.
It was Alice's love of story that led her to start putting them on film in 1896.
This collection may be compared to looking at Alice's bookshelf or
unpacking a trunk in her attic. Since she wrote, or had a hand in writing, almost
all of the stories she helped put on film, these stories tell us something about her
or, at the very least, the times in which she lived.
