A very chirpy Mary having fun
20 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a little fun piece by Mary and it allows her to let go to a chirpy carefree girl. Pickford always seems to leave a few precious moments in all her movies and you always get the feeling they are spontaneous and, there are a number of them here as well.

Her climbing on table to give a hug to big grown men showing just how small she is, but so cute and fun. There is a point where Mary stalks the teacher just prior to trying to hopelessly hide behind a very small tree. The long shot of the teacher in front and Mary stalking behind is just so Monty Python - and is just one of those small pieces that builds the overall feeling of this little movie.

There are few points where you can read Mary's lips very clearly and it was intended which gives momentary intimate feeling with her.

The support cast were just great especially the old man who almost up-stages Mary.

The plot line doesn't kick in until well into the movie and so you get the feeling of just floating around having some fun until the movie 'starts'. Not a great story line or plot development however the performance of all the characters are in fact the movie.

There is always something to see in a Pickford movie.
