A Lot of Great Information

American Experience: Mary Pickford (2005)

This episode of the wonderful series takes a look at the rise and eventual fall of silent screen legend Mary Pickford.

If you're unfamiliar with who Pickford was then you'll get a great education here as you get to hear about her childhood, her relationship with her brother and mother and how she broke into the movies with D.W. Griffith. From here we get some wonderful stories about her rise in the business and how she became the biggest name in Hollywood. Her relationship with Douglas Fairbanks is discussed as well as her final films and later years in life.

As I said, there's a great bit of information to be gained by watching this so those unfamiliar with the work of Pickford will get to see some great film clips as well as plenty of stories about her private life as well as her time on the screen. One wishes that more time was devoted to her life after Hollywood but this is still a very good documentary on the subject.
