Trivia

"Little Annie Rooney" was restored in 2014 from Mary Pickford's personal 35mm tinted nitrate print and contains longer scenes, different camera set-ups, and better shots of Mary Pickford as well as special tinting effects not seen in any previously available versions. The new restoration was first shown as part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' annual "Mary Pickford Celebration of Silent Film." Film historian and author Jeffrey Vance hosted the event and discussed Pickford and the film. Michael Pogorzelski, director of the Academy Film Archive, spoke of the film's restoration process.

An enjoyable silent movie...
26 September 1999 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

Although it might seem a bit bizarre to see a 32-year-old woman play the part of a 12-year-old, Mary Pickford soon makes you forget the incongruities and simply enjoy the fun.

Mary is a street kid in New York City, with her own lovable gang of mischief makers, whose attentions are engaged by the older William Haines (he was 25 at the time & just on the cusp of his own screen stardom.)

To give away too much of the plot would not be fair. Suffice it that Mary is great fun to watch & amply displays why she was Hollywood's first and most beloved super star. Production values are very good, with lots of extras making the NYC street scenes quite believable.
