Women have been omnipresent in Hollywood on the other side of the camera almost from the beginning. Think of the most successful actress, producer and business woman Mary Pickford or Frances Marion, to name but a few.

Well educated women with university degrees took Hollywood by storm. Paula Wagner, film producer of Tom Cruise who heads Cruise Wagner Productions, tells us about the new era in Hollywood. Other contributors include Robin Swicord, Linda Obst, Cari Beauchamps and Ally Acker, filmmaker and author of Reel Women: Pioneers of the Cinema. Plenty of film clips round off this interesting documentary.
