Mary Pickford: The World’s First Movie Star

  • Anoka County Historical Society 2135 THIRD AVE N Anoka United States (map)

Once the most famous and successful woman in the world, Mary Pickford was the original American super star. We'll take an in depth look at her career, from her early silent films to her Oscar winning sound debut! You'll learn all about how this amazing woman founded her own movie studio (which is still in business today), how her acting style revolutionized silent films, how she and her husband became the first world famous celebrity couple, and the huge scandal she caused by simply cutting her hair! Plus you'll get a rare look at clips from several of her classic films and dozens of behind the scenes photographs alongside a lecture from NMTV Studio Manager Eric Houston.
