This never before seen 4K digital presentation debuts a score commissioned by the Mary Pickford Foundation. Foundation film scholar, Cari Beauchamp and composer Andy Gladbach will speak on a panel before the film.
In LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY, Pickford plays a tomboy of the tenement gangs who takes care of her younger brother and widowed father. The setting, a multi-ethnic New York neighborhood, was recreated entirely on the backlot of the Pickford Fairbanks (“Pickfair”) studio. Pickford produced, starred in and wrote the movie (under the pen name Catherine Hennessey). The film follows the formula that Pickford employed to dominate the box-office throughout her career. It showcases her comedic chops and unique ability to play endearing, heartfelt characters. Often appearing in the role of the child, Pickford was the first performer ever coined as “America’s Sweetheart”.
