Late 1930s Scrapbook

This scrapbook is filled with behind-the-scenes photos of Mary Pickford taken between the years 1935 and 1940 and illustrates her activities following her retirement from acting. Far from being reclusive, Mary appears to have been very active – signing copies of her books, meeting dignitaries, running her cosmetics company, attending charitable functions, nightclubbing with third husband Buddy Rogers, traveling to various events and looking every inch a glamorous woman of the world. Also scattered throughout are flashback photos of America’s Sweetheart from the 1910s, in films such as Rags and Pollyanna, and selling Liberty Bonds during WWI.
