Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies



There once was a time long ago when film actors were not treated as royalty, when they were, in fact, silent. That was the era during which Mary Pickford rose to fame. Although the public rarely heard her speak, she became the first major movie star, and an industry leader. This hour we’ll talk about her lasting contributions to the world of cinema.



Thursday and Friday, August 8 & 9,  The Little American is playing at the Ohio Theatre. Christel Schmidt will introduce the screenings.
