Mary Pickford rediscovered: rare pictures of a Hollywood legend
Harry N. Abrams in association with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, May 1, 1999 - Art - 256 pages
Silent-film star Mary Pickford -- "America's Sweetheart" -- was Hollywood's first superstar. In this lavish tribute to Pickford (1892-1979), her enormous and wide-ranging body of work is illustrated with fabulous film stills, rare production shots, and personal photographs -- most never before published -- from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Margaret Herrick Library.
Today's audiences have little knowledge of Pickford's films, let alone of her enormous behind-the-scenes power as one of Hollywood's pioneering producers and cofounder of United Artists. This first illustrated filmography of Pickford's career accords her achievements the recognition they deserve. Noted film historian Kevin Brownlow draws on interviews with Pickford and her circle to provide entertaining film-by-film commentaries full of wonderful anecdotes about the silent era.
