Mary Pickford: A Life on Film

By the age of seventeen, Mary Pickford had become the first actress to achieve international superstardom. By the time she was thirty, she was the first and only woman ever to own a major movie studio, the only woman to be the highest paid actor in Hollywood and the first actress to have complete control in making her films. Although she was born to extreme poverty in Canada, she became an American icon "America's Sweetheart".

With comedic talents equal to Keaton, Lloyd or Chaplin, the tragic range of Gish and Swanson and business acumen to rival that of any Hollywood mogul, Mary Pickford was the consummate movie star of the 20th century.

This is the definitive documentary on the most powerful woman in the history of cinema, featuring an abundance of previously unseen footage from Pickford's own archive. Mary Pickford: A Life on Film combines exceptional research with an intimate understanding of this remarkable woman, demonstrating why she and her films remain beloved and incandescent touchstones of film history.

Hosted and narrated by Whoopi Goldberg. Written by Rita Mae Brown. With Janet Leigh, Roddy McDowall, Leonard Maltin, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Charles "Buddy" Rogers.
