1. Mary Pickford's New York Hat


    from Pam Cook Added

    An interpretation of Mary Pickford's remarkable performance in D.W. Griffith's 'The New York Hat' (1912), screenplay by Anita Loos and Frances Marion. Re-edited and cropped found footage, re-worked with added music, visual and sound effects, including 'glitch' touches. Pickford's acting in the film was part of a shift towards a more intimate performance style, developed by Griffith at Biograph (Roberta E. Pearson, 'Eloquent Gestures: The Transformation of Performance Style in the Griffith Biograph Films', 1991). Pickford delivers a masterclass in conveying emotions from joy to wonder, ecstasy, dismay and distress, using small gestures and body language as well as facial expression. Her 'bits of business' with hat and gloves are superbly executed. 'The New York Hat' displays narrative techniques such as parallel editing and match cutting that became standard methods of storytelling in classic cinema.

                from Rachel Laine Added 257 9 1

                Inspired by Fatal Suit's "Prelude To A Dream", I wanted to create a sci-fi fantasy with a melancholic tone. I used Public Domain footage from a 1918 Mary Pickford movie called Stella Maris and "Cat Women Of The Moon" (1953) & then composited it in After Effects with some of my own model work. Most of the film scratches & other artifacts were added after I had created a reasonably clean version of the film including recreating its inter-titles in Photoshop (fonts used: Nickelodeon & Photoplay).

                • Letitia Fairbanks' "Princess April Morning-Glory" book trailer


                  from Princess April Morning-Glory Added

                  At long last, Princess April Morning-Glory emerges as a lost treasure from the golden age of Hollywood. Written and illustrated in 1941 by Letitia Fairbanks, the niece of silent film stars Douglas Fairbanks Sr. and Mary Pickford, the seemingly traditional children’s book is transformed into a modern-day fairy tale that will captivate child and adult readers alike. Letitia was inspired to create portraiture for the characters of Princess April Morning-Glory from film stars of the day. John Barrymore, and Letitia's cousin Douglas Fairbanks Jr., provided glamorous inspiration through their then-current films. The Wicked King's (Barrymore) costume was sparked by his role as Louis XV in Irving Thalberg's 1938 Marie Antoinette, while the hairstyle resembles his eponymous role in Archie Mayo's 1931 Svengali. Prince Chivalry was inspired by her cousin's (Fairbanks) sword-fighting role in David O. Selznick's 1937 The Prisoner of Zenda. Viewed as unconventional when it first debuted – up until then, no one had thought to meld a Disney-like moral tale with a swashbuckling adventure – the story centers on the prescient acknowledgment that we create our destinies by the choices that we make. The main narrative is focused around the brave and courageous Princess April who must first transcend darkness and evil before she can realize her true potential. Intrigued by the Great World and its sense of adventure, a young Princess April decides to abandon the familiarity of her home in Fairyland and undertake a voyage into the unknown. Once outside the Enchanted Forest, she finds comfort and friendship in the company of various creatures who ensure her safe passage. But returning home proves more difficult than at first she realized. In order to go back to Fairyland, a friendly wizard informs Princess April that she must first accomplish three good deeds. Can Princess April resist the temptation of darker forces and summon enough courage to continue doing good deeds? And if she dares to hold true to herself, will it someday lead her back home again?

                    Info and Tickets: http://www.cinefamily.org/films/the-silent-treatment/ Mary Pickford is remembered as the First Lady of the silent era, the world’s first film superstar — a wide-eyed, golden-haired ingenue whose warmth and expressiveness endeared her to the world. But her legacy as “the actress who invented film” often eclipses her incredible rise from America’s first cinematic sweetheart to studio head of legendary United Artists, where her creative and business partnerships with Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffith, and husband Douglas Fairbanks revolutionized the film industry, and shaped what would become our conception of 20th century Hollywood. Tonight, the Mary Pickford Foundation joins the Cinefamily to wish happy birthday to a woman whose incredible influence matched her prescient acumen, tender beauty, and superstardom. This full-evening celebration features an archival 35mm double-feature of Little Annie Rooney (1925) and Suds (1920) — two Pickford classics in which her spirited sweetness shines in full force. The evening also opens with appearances by special guests Elaina Archer (director of The Mary Pickford Foundation) and Carl Beauchamp (noted Pickford scholar!) Little Annie Rooney Dir. William Beaudine, 1925, 35mm, 94 min. (Archival print courtesy of the UCLA Film And Television Archive) Suds Dir. John Francis Dillon, 1920, 35mm, 65 min.
