By signing a contract with the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company in April 1909, Mary Pickford started her rise to stardom on the cinema screen. The selection starts with one film from 1909 and then the rest from 1912 and highlights key characteristic elements of Pickford’s on-screen persona from the very beginning. All shorts found in this selection are directed by Biograph regular D.W.Griffith. Titles to be announced very soon. Restorations and recorded scores courtesy of The Mary Pickford Foundation. The Wareham Silent Film Weekender is presented by The Rex Cinema and South West Silents and supported by BFI Film Audience Network.
