Each star earned a position at the height of her profession, and though many are largely forgotten today, made a lasting and significant contribution to early cinema. In this entertaining and informative volume, author David Menefee reveals these women and their signature roles, drawing on many original sources to show us how such actresses as Theda Bara, Sarah Bernhardt, Dorothy Gish, and Norma Talmadge were received in their time, and the many ways in which their influence remains important today.Each profile contains a biographical treatment, an analysis of key films from her career, a discussion of the actresss influence on the medium, and selected filmography.

Each also includes two photographs, most often one of the actress herself and a still from a film.
