    'Mary Pickford': A portrait fit for film royalty
    Mary Pickford bobbed her hair on June 21, 1928. It made news worldwide. For she was "America's Sweetheart," and those signature golden curls symbolized an earlier, more innocent age when Pickford reigned as the most famous movie star in the world. Pickford's fame burned so brightly and so early — she was washed up in movies by the early 1930s — that it's hard now to recall her impact on popular culture as a gifted actress, wife to fellow superstar Douglas Fairbanks (shown above) and one of Hollywood's most powerful movie moguls. Now, a handsome new book titled “Mary Pickford: Queen of the Movies” attempts to restore Pickford to the limelight with essays by film critics and scholars examining all sides of her persona. It's lavishly illustrated with more than 235 photos and images.
