Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies

Speaker: Christel Schmidt

December 4, 2012

 

A century ago, in the early days of cinema, when actors were unbilled and unmentioned in credits, audiences immediately noticed Mary Pickford. Dubbed “America’s Sweetheart,” Pickford charmed moviegoers during the first three decades of the 20th century with magnetic talent, as she rose to become cinema’s first great star. Christel Schmidt’s “Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies,” sheds new light on this icon’s life and legacy.

About the Speaker: Christel Schmidt is a film historian, writer and editor. She was awarded two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities for her work on Mary Pickford and is co-editor of “Silent Movies: The Birth of Film and the Triumph of Movie Culture.”
