With special guests! Between 1909 and 1912, Mary Pickford appeared in an estimated 152 shorts. Most were for the Biograph Company – the best of the early American film companies – with legendary director D.W. Griffith. She expertly played a wide-range of characters with a natural performance style that made her a fan favorite and became one of the company’s highest paid players. Of all of the actors who got their start at Biograph, including Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Constance Talmadge, Richard Barthelmess and more, Pickford was the studio’s biggest and brightest star. This retrospective of Mary Pickford’s Biograph Company short films includes Sweet and Twenty, The Trick That Failed, and To Save Her Soul (1909); Simple Charity (1910); The Dream and Sweet Memories (1911); and The Informer and The New York Hat (1912).
