Mary Pickford interviews provide insight into her life and times

America’s Sweetheart is on the radio!
CBC Radio has recently been airing interviews with Mary Pickford. This archival material was captured in May 1959 with host Tony Thomas. These great interviews provide an interesting insight into the career of Gladys Smith, a girl from Toronto who became America’s Sweetheart.
The life and times of Mary Pickford is the subject of a play by Dean Burry being presented this summer, July 22-24, at the Highlands Summer Festival. Denise Norman will bring all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood to life in this one woman show with stories, music and pictures from the era.

Just a reminder, one of the three performances of Sweetheart: the Mary Pickford Story is already sold out. If you want to see this fabulous production, be sure to order you tickets soon.
