Outstanding. I Couldn't Turn Away
I stumbled upon this and was transfixed. It taught me so much, and the rare footage was a treat. Please air it again and again. Thank you.
why only once?
- david wales
this was so fascinating and under-valued information so when are you showing it again?
Why is this important issue- , i.e. related to the role & experience of women in films- relegated to 1:45 in the morning, when fewer people will see it? It almost reinforces the belief that womens' work is not so highly prized!Come on TCM!

A Brilliant, Fascinating Woman
- David Lindquist
This is a fascinating insight into the earliest days of movies and the exceptional role of a group of strong women in founding the movie industry. Frances Marion was known to me through selling her personal antiques and art collection and I had heard of many of her exploits from family members. I was also aware of the book which provides much of the basis for this one hour biography. This short film brilliantly and fascinatingly synthesizes her life, the times she lived in, her truly great heart and unbelievable talent--I only wish I had been organized enough to record it--I want to see it again and again!If you are interested in early Hollywood, women's rights, fascinating figures of the 20th century--this is worth your time!
