Trivia

In later years, Mary Pickford reminisced about the making of Wilful Peggy. She said that, originally, when her character Peggy was ordered by her mother to marry the much-older aristocrat, she was supposed to meekly submit. On the set, Mary remarked that in reality she would give her mother "a good shake" if she ordered her to marry an old man for money. Director D.W. Griffith urged her to follow her instincts, so 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 »

A Fun Role For a Young Mary Pickford
24 September 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

A young Mary Pickford has a fun role in this short feature, as a pretty but strong-willed peasant woman who attracts the attention of a rich nobleman. There isn't much plot, just a few humorous situations, but her spirited performance as "Wilful Peggy" makes it worth watching all in itself. It's not nearly so refined, of course, as the many great performances she would give in the future, but she is funny and lively, and anyone who likes Pickford should enjoy this short romantic comedy.
