This presentation formed part of the 'Exploring the cultural history of fame symposium' held in Deakin Downtown. It examined Sarah Bernhardt’s little known involvement in the film industry at the opening of the twentieth century. It suggested that Bernhardt’s engagement with film in her 50s and 60s inaugurated global celebrity as we understand it today.
