Jack Pickford Scrapbook

Jack Pickford, Mary’s younger brother, is the subject of Academy Scrapbook # 75. His entire life is covered here, including his acting appearances, his marriages to Olive Thomas and Marilyn Miller and his early death. Jack proved himself to be a talented actor, but his height (just a little over 5 feet tall) and a perennially boyish face were obstacles that he couldn’t overcome. And as others such as Micky Neilen and Raoul Walsh have testified, Jack loved the good life and was always up for party, yet he was much more than that as this unique scrapbook proves.
