ALICE GUY ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME!
The Fort Lee Film Commission of Fort Lee, New Jersey, has worked with Alice Guy Blaché biographer Alison McMahan to create one of the only existing historic markers dedicated to the role Alice Guy Blaché played as the first woman film director and studio owner. The marker is located on Lemoine Avenue adjacent to the Fort Lee High School and on the site of Solax Studio. The Fort Lee Film Commission is currently at work with other organizations to gain Alice Guy Blaché entry in the Directors Guild of America and to also secure a star for her on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Finally, the Fort Lee Film Commission will work to get a proper marker on the Bergen County, New Jersey, grave of Alice Guy Blaché to signify her role as a pioneer in world cinema history.
Yet, there will always be a select few who will want to know. The Lumieres, Guy-Blache and Melies were aware of each other’s existence. All had viewed each other’s works. The Lumieres’ era of product development and commercial activity can roughly be set between the early 1880s to mid 1930s. Melies era of creativity can roughly be set from between the mid 1890s to 1913. Guy-Blache’s era of creativity can roughly be set from between the mid 1890s to 1922.
However, of all involved in this narrowly selective, as well as most important, era of the earliest development of the Cinema, Louis Lumiere is the one honored with a star on the ‘Walk of Fame’ on Hollywood Boulevard.
