Graymalkin– you got closer than most college professors but still missed the mark by almost 15 years although this woman was producing and directing films in NYC and Fort Lee NJ and came out of semi-retirement because of what she saw Giffith and Chaplin doing.
The Riefenstalh answer one of the two most college professors used, the first also being the wrong answer, of Dorothy Arzner. Arzner WAS taught in colleges as being the first female director but eventually we found dozens of others, including Mary Pickford.
