Who was the first Woman Producer in Hollywood?

Alice Ida Antoinette Guy-Blaché

Alice Ida Antoinette Guy-Blaché was born on July 1, 1873, and died on March 24, 1968. She was a French pioneer filmmaker and was one of the first filmmakers to make a narrative fiction film and was also the first woman to direct a film.

During the time period 1896 to 1906, she was most likely the only female filmmaker in the world. She experimented with Gaumont’s Chronophone sync-sound system, and with color-tinting, interracial casting, and special effects.
