Released in 2008 to critical acclaim, the film traces Mary Pickford’s remarkable life, exploring how her career as a film star-cum-producer marked her out as one of cinema’s earliest pioneers.
Restored audio recordings allow Pickford to narrate her own story, pieced together with classic clips from her 52 films and previously unseen home video footage.
Contributions from film mogul Adolph Zukor, one of the first to recognise Pickford’s potential, as well as the only interview ever given by Mary’s daughter, Roxanne Rogers Monroe, provide a fascinating insight into the private life of a woman who lived the majority of her 87 years on a very public stage.
A profile of the silent movie star, exploring the businesswoman behind the golden-haired little girl persona that she portrayed on screen during the early years of cinema.
