The Three Minute Wonder
27 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made her screen debut in 'Mrs. Jones Entertains' at the age of 17, Mary Pickford appeared in 35 more short films under the direction of D.W. Griffith before she began to launch out and write her own material. Although 35 films may seem a lot in one year, they only lasted for three minutes.
