57. The Poor Little Rich Girl (1917)

Mary Pickford won me over. I'd had an inkling of what she might be like but I was proven wrong. I was initially weirded out by the thought of a 25 year old playing an 11 year old but turns out she pulled it off very nicely. She was so petite ! Tiniest thing and so charming.
It was a mind blower to see echoes of her brother's features in her own.
Now I'm dying to see one of Lottie's films.

Directed by Maurice Tourneur
