WOMEN’S FILM PRESERVATION FUND AT THE WHITNEY MUSEUM
Friday, December 4, 7 pm
Women’s Film Preservation Fund is honored to be part of the Whitney’s 2009-2010 homage to Alice Guy Blaché.
Join us for a WFPF screening of three Alice Guy Blaché films, which the Fund helped to preserve. These charming comedies were all made at her Solax Studios, in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Mixed Pets is the earliest extant Solax film and A Fool and His Money is the first American film featuring an all African American cast. Matrimony's Speed Limit (1912), one of the Fund’s first films, was part of its inaugural project in 1995.
