Arguably the very first movie star, Mary Pickford was more than just a pretty face in the silent film era. Learn the extent of her talent and legacy when editor Christel Schmidt discusses and signs Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies. Co-published with the Library of Congress, this collection explains Pickford's roles as not only a talented actress, but also as a philanthropist and industry leader who managed to end up her own producer. The volume includes more than 200 illustrations, photographs and stills that paint a vivid picture of the starlet-turned-icon.
