Lois Weber in Early Hollywood

Lois Weber was one of the leading film directors and screenwriters of the 1910s and early 1920s: she made sophisticated, socially aware films that were as beautiful as they were passionate. She was also a woman, and now she is more often remembered as a rare female director of the early period, than as an outstanding talent in her own right. Shelley Stamp’s first-class new book Lois Weber in Early Hollywood aims to put that right. I was lucky enough to review it for the August 2015 edition of Sight & Sound.
