Summary Known as "America's sweetheart," Mary Pickford created a whole new persona: darling, feisty young women who caught America by storm. After her marriage to Douglas Fairbanks, it seemed like a dream come true.
"Mary Pickford created a totally new way of acting that entranced audiences and left them spell-bound. She was also a creative producer and shrewd businessperson who played a pivotal role in shaping the first new media of the twentieth century. This powerful and moving production uses footage, stills, original audio interviews with Pickford and clips from her movies to tell a story that is full of joy and power, of loneliness and despair."--Distributor's website.
