Mary Pickford: America's Sweetheart
Mary Pickford was the biggest star of the silent screen era. In this one-woman show, historical interpreter Elaine Flynn will take you on a journey through Mary’s life, including her work in more than 200 films, her marriage to the infamous Douglas Fairbanks, her development--with Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, and D.W. Griffith--of the studio United Artists, and her last years at Pickfair, the estate Fairbanks purchased for her in 1919. Go back in time to the days when the silent movies were in vogue, when the stars didn’t need dialogue, and as Gloria Swanson says in Sunset Boulevard, "We had FACES!" Teens and adults.
