Transcript of Mary Pickford

"Mary Pickford"

Mary was destined to become America's first "sweetheart". Mary Pickford was born Gladys Marie Smith on April 8, 1892, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Acting would become a second nature to Mary because her parents were actors and it was only natural that she would follow in their footsteps. She appeared in her first production at the age of six, but started acting at the age of 14. Mary appeared in 51 films - almost one a week! Her career lasted from 1908 to 1935. She was the most popular star in the silent era, if not of all time. Mary Pickford was awarded an Oscar for Lifetime Achievement in 1976. She died on May 29, 1979, she died of a cerebral hemorrhage in Santa Monica, California. She was 87 years old. Baby Gladys

America's Sweetheart (abroad, The World's Sweetheart)
Little Mary Mary Pickford was a famous actress during the years of Charlie Chaplin's comedic movies and silent films. She became the first millionaire in the movie world. She was known as "America's Sweetheart" because of her beauty and lasting youth in films.

Mary Pickford's impact was that she had no education, and yet she hit the top of the pile. She did it all-act, direct, produce-and she was good at it all in a way that no one could be today. She ruled the nation's movie houses during the silent film era & cofounded United Artists. "She changed movie history". I picked this topic because I though it was interesting and I wanted to know more about why Mary Pickford was America's First Sweetheart. I like learing about famous movie stars and people that are in history. I wanted to know how Mary Pickford impacted people and the movie world. I can connect to this because like Mary I like to act, also I like watching movies that are in black and white. I like watching historical movies and seeing how things have changed throughout the years.
