Introducing the Mary Pickford “Rosita” Mug. It’s a perfect gift for silent film lovers and fans of “America’s Sweetheart.”
Mary Pickford (April 8, 1892 – May 29, 1979) was born Gladys Louise Smith. Although she was promoted as “America’s Sweetheart” in the U.S. , she was actually born in Canada. Throughout the 1910s and 1920s, she was the film industry’s most significant and powerful female film star and producer and was the first “Queen of the Movies.” She co-founded the Pickford–Fairbanks Studios with her then husband Douglas Fairbanks as well as United Artists in partnership with Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin, and D. W. Griffith. If that isn’t enough, she also was one of the original founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, home of the Academy Awards.
In 1930, she won the second Academy Award for Best Actress for her first sound film role in Coquette (1929). In 1976, she received an Academy Honorary Award for her life’s accomplishments. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her 24th in its list of greatest female stars of classic Hollywood Cinema.
Truth be told, there will never be another Mary Pickford. She did more to promote and make motion pictures popular than any star of her era. Although her films may be considered old fashioned by today’s standards, no female star had a longer, more influential run at the top of the hill than our little Mary.
