Did You Know?


In later years, Mary Pickford reminisced about the making of Wilful Peggy. She said that, originally, when her character Peggy was ordered to marry the much-older aristocrat, she was supposed to submit in a docile fashion. Instead, Mary remarked: "I'd like to give this mother of mine in the picture a good shake when she orders me to marry a man old enough to be my grandfather." Director D. W. Griffith replied: "Well, why don't you do it, Pickford? I've no objection." When the cameras rolled, Mary fought the actress playing her mother, and chased her around a tree. Griffith loved the resulting scene, which went to the finished film. See more »

Willful Peggy (1912)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith short about a young woman (Mary Pickford) who's promised off to a man she doesn't care for but at the wedding the man's nephew starts to make a pass. It was nice seeing Pickford and nice seeing Griffith doing a comedy but the overall film wasn't too good. There are a few nice touches but nothing non die hards should seek out.

Mender of the Nets, The (1910)

*** (out of 4)

Highly entertaining film from D.W. Griffith about a woman (Mary Pickford) who's lover leaves her for another woman so her brother goes out to kill him. The real highlight here, besides Pickford's performance, is Griffith's editing, which nicely builds up suspense in the terrific ending.
