Mary Pickford


Actress week would not be complete without a picture of Mary Pickford. Mary was one of the first real Mega-Stars, and first became famous in silent films.

Mary is pictured above with her second husband, Douglas Fairbanks. She was married three times in all. So, the Hollywood lifestyle appears to be filled with glamor, but maybe not so much happiness.

  1. It might be the little shoes, or the flowers she is holding but, in my opinion, she has a delicate beauty which your previous two featured performers did not. Her smile appears at once sincere and a little sad.

    I love this picture.

  2. Didn't you have a photo of those two awhile back? Not this exact photo, but one with the two of them on a ship.
    She sure look tiny and delicate.

  3. Wasn't she the silent star that was also first dubbed 'America's Sweetheart'? I can't remember who that was, I know I read it somewhere though.

  6. pretty people in show biz are always around pretty people in show biz and that often leads to a more "fluid" sort of life. 3 times? How many plain folks marry at least 2 times?

  7. From what little memory I have of the events of that time and era,I was given the impression that Mary was a person of astute business acumen! Her name has endured the test of time through the simple fact that it is known widely even if the exact circumstances are not evident at first glance! G'day.
