Mary Pickford plays dual roles in this major advancement in filmmaking and a major change from anything the star had done before. Stella Maris tells the story of two, very different young women. A rich and disabled Stella Maris and Unity Blake, a deformed and abused orphan. Director, Marshall Neilan, and cinematographer Walter Stradling created some trick photography for Mary to play both roles, using double exposure photography and complex editing which made it possible to present both characters on screen simultaneously. A true masterclass on acting and directing The Wareham Silent Film Weekender are proud to present this UK Premiere of the new restoration and recorded score by 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.
