Overview

Although much work on the early years of film history still remains to be done, one fact about the silent era can be proclaimed with certainty: as writers, directors, editors, and, of course, actresses, women played a vitally important role. Research focusing on these early years of the movie business has in general been hampered by an unfortunate lack of resources. Through time, many of the films and much of the written material has deteriorated or disappeared. Now, with the publication of these scenarios by women writers, a fascinating new area of study is brought to light.
