I’m happy to announce that March is hereby dedicated to Mary Pickford here on Silent-logy! The spunky, 5’1″ “Girl with the Curls” was not only a singularly gifted actress, but was a force to be reckoned with, an artist whose vision as well as astonishing business sense helped shape the course of film history. She was once the most famous woman in Hollywood, and therefore one of the most famous women in the world. And to the picture-going public she was “Our Mary.”
I’ll be covering her life, some of her most interesting films, and other tidbits. Please stop by often for this extended celebration of the incomparable “America’s Sweetheart”!
