September 16, 1997
International House's Neighborhood Film/Video Project presents Sweetheart:
The Films of Mary Pickford with seven of her most astonishing performances
from September 18-24. Little Annie Rooney, directed by William Beaudine,
in 1925, is Mary Pickford's final child role (at right) as the 12-year-old
kid of an Irish cop. Mary Pickford (1892-1979) was the consummate movie
star of the silent era; she was the first actress to reach a true level
of international stardom. She was one of the founders of United Artists
and one of the first actresses to produce her own films. For many decades
most of her films have been out of circulation; this series brings some
of her best performances out of the archives and back to the silver screen.
