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 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 »

really good if you like slapstick
27 December 2006 | by (porltand, or) – See all my reviews

I'm a film maker and silent films have become my guilty pleasure lately, a lot of people watch 80's films or dumb action flicks or whatever, but me I like old silents, reason being, you can often feel the fun they had making them.

DW Griffith is remembered-by those who remember him-as a racist and/or film innovator which is probably a fair assessment either way. I will say that this shows his abilities to not just play stereotypes.

In a way Peggy is a feminist heroine, if someone offends her she breaks a piano stool over their head, she dresses like a man and at one point tries to seduce a bar maid, also the Lord is an interesting characters, he's unhindered by her stand-offish attitude and in fact likes it-even if it does seem a little condescending.

I guess though I'm being to thoughtful. It's quick paced for it's and genuinely funny.
