    This is a fascinating and beautiful biography tribute to Mary Pi

    This is a fascinating and beautiful biography tribute to Mary Pickford. I ordered a copy for my Mom and after we watched it, I decided I had to have a copy as well. It is beautifully done, capturing Mary Pickford's beauty and charm while telling her story from childhood, starting early to be a smart business women. What she did for Hollywood no one else has or ever will. 5 stars!
