Lecture -- Mary Pickford: The Brightest Star

In her time, film star Mary Pickford was the most famous woman in the world. Worshipped by her adoring fans, Pickford did more than embody Hollywood – she invented Hollywood. In the earliest days of cinema, Pickford and her colleagues built an empire from the ground up, and her real-life story is as compelling and cinematic as any epic film. In an era when women had few opportunities, “Little Mary” rose from childhood poverty to an unprecedented level of power and wealth. But what was the secret to her success? Come along on a journey to the past, as we uncover the life, career, and far-reaching influence of Mary Pickford, emphasizing the impact of such individuals as Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffith, and Charlotte Hennessey.
