"A Little Princess" (1917)
Adapted by Frances Marion from Frances Hodgson’s Burnett’s popular novel, A Little Princess is rarely seen today although it was one of Mary Pickford's biggest hits. Directed by Marshall Neilan and co-starring Norman Kerry and a young ZaSu Pitts in her first screen role, this comedy-drama also features the first scene directed by a then-unknown assistant named Howard Hawks. Don’t miss this forgotten gem that Variety called "Miss Pickford at her best." Plus The School Teacher and the Waif ('12) and Love Among the Roses ('10).
