Mary Pickford was born on this day in 1892, so in celebration of her birthday (and celebration of her life, in general), I thought a special Mary Pickford post, along with the full version of her movie The Little Princess was called for.
First of all, I sincerely want to apologize for the fact that Silent Movies and their WONDERFUL stars aren’t better-represented here on Hollywood Yesterday. My only excuse is the fact that they’re relatively new to me.
I have, however, fallen head over heels (silently, of course) in love with them – almost consumed with them, if we’re being honest – and am in the process of doing right by them!
The more silents I watch, the more frequently I find myself editing my About Page and adding their stars and movies to my lists of favorites. I have no idea how I ever lived without silent movies in my life!
