George Pratt Interviews Mary Pickford – 1958, Part 2

By 1958, when Mary was interviewed by George Pratt at Pickfair, she had been working for some time with the George Eastman House. Pratt, in those days before the internet or easy access to early magazines and newspapers, was renowned for collecting bits of information on films and actors that allowed him – and others – to connect the dots of silent films. As you can see from this interview, Pratt knew his films and his filmmakers and it is all the more revelatory because of his knowledge.
