It’s National Women’s Equality Day. Approximately 50% of American movies made before 1925 were written by women; compare that with about 10% of movies these days. [Sources here and here.]

Since the dawn of cinema, women have been making meaningful contributions to the film industry behind the camera. Here are just a few of those distinguished ladies who made movies.

  • Alice Guy Blaché – actress, writer, cinematographer, producer, director
  • Lois Weber – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Cleo Madison – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Anita Loos – actress, writer, producer
  • Mary Pickford – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Mabel Normand – actress, writer, producer, director
  • Dorothy Arzner – writer, editor, director
  • Mae West – actress, writer

SAVE THE WORLD’S OLDEST FILM SET! Universal Studios’ Stage 28 has a lot of memories. Parts of Dracula, Torn Curtain, and The Sting were filmed there, to name only a few. Built for the silent Phantom of the Opera (1925), the original Paris opera sets are still there. Some say the soundstage is haunted—but those ghosts might be homeless soon.

Because the word is that Universal plans to tear down this landmark of Hollywood history.

If you want to save Stage 28, SIGN THIS PETITION NOW. And also sign this one. This is really important. It’s part of our cultural heritage.

I don’t like to ask favors of you lovely people who follow me, but please, please, please do this. Together you are mighty enough to reach the goal.
