A documentary that explores the life of Mary Pickford who by age seventeen, had become the first actress to achieve international superstardom. By the time she was thirty, she was the first and only woman ever to own a major movie studio, the only woman to be the highest-paid actor in Hollywood and the first actress to have complete control in making her films. Although born to extreme poverty in Canada, she became an American icon.
