Birthday Remembrance, Mary Pickford
April 8, 1892 – May 29, 1979

Known during the height of her career as “America’s Sweetheart” and the “girl with the curls“, Pickford was a co-founder of United Artists film studio and one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She was awarded the second ever Academy Award for Best Actress for her first ‘talkie’ film role in Coquette (1929).

Her film career spanned over four decades with over 250 film credits. Mary was the older sister of actors Lottie Pickford (1893-1936) and Jack Pickford (1896-1933).

In her personal life, Pickford was married three times to actors Owen Moore (1911-1920), Douglas Fairbanks Sr. (1920-1936) and Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers (1937-1979).

She adopted two children with Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers; a son Ronald Charles Rogers ( b.1937) and a daughter Roxanne Rogers (1944- 2007).

Pickford died at the age of 87 in Santa Monica, California of a cerebral hemorrhage and is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, California.

  • 125º aniversário de Mary Pickford

  • Lights, camera, action! Today’s doodle honors the “Queen of the Movies,” Mary Pickford. An actress, a film director, and a producer, Mary Pickford proved that actors weren’t relegated to careers in front of the camera. She co-founded the film studio United Artists and was one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

    Before she became one of the most powerful women who has ever worked in Hollywood, she was “the girl with the curls,” and one of the most beloved stars of the silent film era. She appeared in as many as 50 films per year, and eventually negotiated wages that were equal to half of each of her films’ profits. She went on to demand full creative and financial control of her films, a feat still unheard of to this day.

    She used her stardom to bring awareness to causes close to her heart. She sold Liberty Bonds during World War I, created the Motion Picture Relief Fund, and revolutionized the film industry by giving independent film producers a way to distribute their films outside the studio system. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role in Coquette (1929), and an honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement in 1976.

    Today, we pay tribute to Mary Pickford’s enterprising leadership on what would be her 125th birthday.
