Mary's first film
20 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is noted and notable as Mary Pickford's first film appearance.

I don't know where people are seeing this film, I haven't been able to find it to watch.

Appearing in the flickers was demeaning but a way to make extra cash and in those days getting your hands on extra cash was essential to living. Mary with a little sister, brother and mother was a major income earner for the family in acting on the stage. Mary was just starting to 'make it' as a stage actress and would have certainly gone on to some reasonable success there, Belasco liked her work. But it was often seasonable and unreliable.

The early movies were uncredited and actors didn't use their real names in any case to avoid the 'shame' of appearing on film.

So Mary's appearance and early tenure at Biograph whilst as a young girl she was certainly no push-over for Griffith's or the others. Mary had already lived a rough and tough and exhausting stage career from a little girl. This Mary had a hard and feisty edge to herself (probably from her hard headed and smart mother). Incidentally it was this strength of character in such a cute little package that attracted Griffith to her.
