Mary Pickford: The World's First Major Movie Star
Time & Location
About the Event
Join Michelle Cohen in a virtual presentation of the world’s first major movie star - MARY PICKFORD. We will follow a fascinating career that still defines the Hollywood we know today - highlighting her complex relationship with Charlie Chaplin, torrid affair with Douglas Fairbanks and creative pioneering with D.W. Griffith as the four of them create United Artists. Interested in romance, nostalgia, early Hollywood, swashbuckling heroes and plucky heroines, famous faces, the Oscars, film making, rags to riches triumph, and celebrity in the making? Well then, get ready for your close up (which was invented on Mary) and have your fill.
This event is hosted by New York Adventure Club. There is a $10 fee on their site and you get full access to the lecture for the week following the live event.
