MPF & the UCLA Film & Television Archive Form a Partnership to Digitally Preserve and Master Mary Pickford Films

The Mary Pickford Foundation and the UCLA Film & Television Archive are partnering to digitally preserve and master a number of Mary Pickford’s films.  Using only the most recently restored and highest quality film elements, selected titles will be scanned in 4k by the UCLA digital team. The Mary Pickford Foundation will then complete all digital work in collaboration with the staff at the UCLA Archive. MPF will produce original, modern scores to be synced to the films for worldwide distribution.

Mary Pickford films currently in production are The Little American (1917) , in cooperation with the Cecil B. DeMille Foundation; The Love Light (1921), in cooperation with the Packard Humanities Institute; and Amarilly of Clothesline Alley (1918), accessing elements from the Mary Pickford Foundation’s Collection.
