Mary Pickford Scrapbook 1922-1926

Scrapbook #21 from the Academy’s Mary Pickford collection features a variety of newspaper and fan magazine clippings from the years 1922-1926. Actresses dubbed “Mary Pickfords” of their countries are featured here including Suzanne Grandais, called the Mary Pickford of France, Japan’s Teijiro Tachibana and several others, reflecting Mary’s global impact and international popularity. The Pickford fan responsible for assembling this book pasted not only articles and magazine covers relating to Mary and some of her film contemporaries such as Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin, but also clippings of stage actresses Sarah Bernhardt, Lillian Russell and Eleanora Duse.
