The Mary Pickford Foundation is pleased to announce a screening of the restored print of My Best Girl (1927), Mary’s final silent film, at the 2015 UCLA Festival of Preservation on Sunday, March 15th at 7 pm. This charming romantic comedy directed by Sam Taylor and co-starring Charles “Buddy” Rogers is often considered Pickford’s finest film and is not to be missed on the big screen.
Also showing are two rarely-screened early Pickford shorts, the Biograph The Son’s Return (1909) directed by D.W. Griffith, and the IMP A Manly Man (1911), directed by Thomas Ince. Jere Guldin, Senior Film Preservationist at UCLA Film & Television Archive, will be on hand to discuss the films and live musical accompaniment will be provided by Cliff Retallick.
