Synopsis

Traces the life and work of the legendary silent film star, movie pioneer, and shrewd business woman who co-created United Artists Studios and was a major force in the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Pickford's life (1892-1979) also parallels an even larger story, the telling of the "birth of the cinema" itself. Mary, known as "America's Sweetheart" was the first actress to earn one million dollars during a single year, and the only star who has ever received a 50% profit share of her movies. Through restored vintage audio recordings, Pickford narrates much of her own story.
