Pickford was an Academy Award-winning Canadian motion picture star, as
well as a co-founder of the film studio United Artists and one of the
original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Known as "America's Sweetheart," "Little Mary" and
"The girl with the curls," she was one of the first Canadian
pioneers in early Hollywood and one of film's greatest pioneers.
Her influence in the development of film acting was enormous. Because
her international fame was triggered by moving images, she is a
watershed figure in the history of modern celebrity. And as one of
silent film's most important performers and producers, her contract
demands were central to shaping the Hollywood industry. In consideration
of her contributions to American cinema, the American Film Institute
named Pickford 24th among the greatest female stars of all time.
She died of cerebral hemorrhage on May 29, 1979, at the age of 87.
