Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford -- Two Novels -- November 20, 2021

Omaha Bee, 06-November-1921

Douglas Fairbanks' adaption of Alexandre Dumas père's Three Musketeers was doing booming business. I like the saluting swordsmen at the bottom and the oval frame at the top, with Doug's picture.

Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, husband and wife, were the main pillars of United Artists.

Mary Pickford played two roles in this adaption of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel Little Lord Fauntleroy. She was Cedric Errol, who became Little Lord Fauntleroy, and Cedric's mother, Dearest. Mary Pickford was particularly proud of a double exposure scene, where she as Cedric's mother gave herself as Cedric a hug.

Mary Pickford's ne'er-do-well brother Jack co-directed with Alfred E Green.
