Directed by: Lois Weber, Alice Guy
Live musical accompaniment by: Hank Troy
Lois Weber, once one of the most highly regarded directors in America, took on tough subjects like poverty, birth control and – most of all – the lives of women. Unlike male filmmakers, Weber places action where her women characters spend their lives. She shows her characters on back porches, and in kitchens, parlors and food markets. In The Blot, the daughter of an impoverished college professor (Claire Windsor) is courted by a callow rich student (Louis Calhern). She tells him to come back when he becomes a better person.
Alice Guy, the maker of A House Divided, began her career in France, and is the first director of any gender to be credited on screen.
