Making an American Citizen

Guy Blaché, Alice
Genre: 
While this film is, according to film historian Alison McMahan, “‘against’ the oppression of women,” it “tells us more about the social and economic pressures to ‘Americanize’” and assimilate foreigners like Guy Blaché. The film follows an Eastern European couple that comes to the United States, where the husband learns four lessons in “Americanism.” Music by Frederick Hodges.
