An Ugly Mary still an enjoyable Mary
20 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Mary Pickford abandons the cute visage of her curls and good looks and sweetness and adopts a severe ugly looking visage (aka Stella Maris) and remains fascinating. It is actually hard to recognize the woman as Mary Pickford. But it goes to show you are still fascinated with the girl even when she is looking ugly.

This was necessarily a fun movie with lots of gags and loonie moments - such as giving the horse the Pickford hair curls, spending a night with a horse some good slap-stick. Lots of banter with her work mates.

But as usual there are a number of Pickford moments in this movie. There was a momentary change in feeling when we see Mary realize her hoped for suitor is embarrassed by the way she looks dressed up in her best rags and the dialog that follows in that scene. And the rags Mary has to wear are really really rag rags - hard to imagine rags so bad.

In fact though this was a comedy they really did go to some effort to create the depressing dank and poor setting of a London laundry. It was oppressive but essential to the comedy.

The end came upon us suddenly and lacked development though of course it would have been predictable and could written itself but, it would have been nice to have gone through the process for the sake of feeling complete. I wonder if they had time pressures, or if they had just finished a reel and didn't want it flow over into part of another reel.

Despite the minor ending deficiency this was a very enjoyable movie and especially so because Mary didn't look like Mary.
