Niles honors Mary Pickford
Submitted By Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum
The Library of Congress and the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum present a special night devoted to a special lady: Mary Pickford - actress, film maker, and earth shaker.
On Saturday, February 2, we celebrate Mary Pickford at the beginning of her career with a selection of her Biograph and IMP films in 35mm prints from the Library of Congress. (Bruce Loeb will be at the piano.) Christel Schmidt will be on hand to talk about the films and autograph her book, "Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies."
Scheduled films include three from 1909: "Sweet and Twenty," "They Would Elope," and "Trick That Failed"; 1910's "Simple Charity"; "The Dream, Sweet Memories" from 1911; and 1912's "The Informer" and The School Teacher and the Waif." (Films may change if unavailable.)
This program is held in conjunction with the Smith Rafael Film Center and the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, and all branches of Books, Inc.
Tickets are $6 for members and $8 for non-members, and are available through PayPal at www.nilesfilmmuseum.org.
