My Best Girl

Thanks to the superb work of Sam Taylor (one of Harold Lloyd's favorite directors), legendary cinematographer Charles Rosher and producer/star Mary Pickford, My Best Girl has become one of Hollywood's greatest romantic comedies, pairing Pickford with husband-to-be Charles "Buddy" Rogers.

Maggie is a lowly shopgirl in a big-city five-and-ten-cent store. She meets Joe who has just started out in the stockroom. Unbeknownst to her, Joe is the owner's son, trying to prove himself to his wealthy family. Falling in love with Maggie, Joe gives up his society sweetheart Millicent. Learning of this, the boy's father unsuccessfully tries to buy Maggie off. Realizing that because of her, Joe is going to be cut-off from his family, she poses as a floozy golddigger (in one of Mary Pickford's great comic scenes) to convince him to let her go. When the father finds out of her sacrifice, he discovers the error of his ways and agrees to their marriage.

The special feature on the DVD is newsreel footage of the marriage of Buddy Rogers and Mary Pickford, as well as home movies of their life together.

Also available in silent and sound (organ track) 35mm prints for theatrical and nontheatrical screenings. Contact Milestone for price and availability!
