She was the first woman to star in a film she produced and directed. Having created her own independent production company, The Filmakers, she made low budget films with a strong social message such as NOT WANTED, NEVER FEAR, OUTRAGE and THE BIGAMIST. She also produced and directed a film noir with THE HITCH-HIKER. Another first for a woman who once said of herself to be “the poor man's Don Siegel”. Clips from her most important films and rare archive footage round off a documentary about the come-back of great female creativity behind the camera which had been the domain of men since the talkies where invented.
