This novelized biography brings Alice Guy back to us, all of her determination, her creativity, her passion, her flaws, and her glory.
This book provides a close analysis of the one hundred Guy Blaché films that survive, and in the process rewrites early cinema history.

Secrets of the Night directed by Herbert Blaché

Mystery. Comedy. A murder in an old house where everyone is a suspect.

These are the building blocks of Secrets of the Night, a silent movie from 1924. For years, silent film enthusiasts thought the flick was lost, like more than 7,000 other films from the era. In fact, it was listed on the U.S. Library of Congress's list of lost films.

I just stumbled on this website in Spanish devoted to Alice Guy, which starts with a blurb from the Spanish edition of my book:
