In tribute to Mary Pickford who would have celebrated her birthday today, I thought I’d share this outstanding interview she did with CBC Radio on May 25, 1959. In it she recounts memories of her life and career – a smorgasbord of wonderful quotes and remembrances.
In her own words for your listening pleasure.
A bit late as Miss Swanson would have celebrated her birthday a couple of days ago, but no less fun and never a waste to remember. Here are a couple of silent comedy shorts starring Gloria Swanson and Bobby Vernon – both directed by Clarence G. Badger and produced by Mack Sennett. And worth a look.
The Danger Girl (1916)
The Sultan’s Wife (1917)
