Running time: 75 mins
Filmed over ten weeks, Little Annie Rooney was shot entirely on a set created by art director John D. Schulze at the Pickford Fairbanks Studio. Co-starring William Haines and a wide-ranging, multi-ethnic cast and directed by William Beaudine, Little Annie Rooney met with huge critical and commercial success upon its original release. So much in fact that star and director would join forces again within a year to make the masterpiece that is Sparrows (to be screened later this evening). If anything, Little Annie Rooney proved fans and critics alike wanted the then-33-year-old Mary to stay a child forever. 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.
