Recommended Posts

Another Television debut of a long unseen *Mary Pickford* feature from 1919 *THE HOODLUM* is being unveiled this evening on Silent Sundays. As with *THE POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL,* I have never seen this movie before. New orchestral score composed by *Bonnie Ruth Janofsky,* a composer who I am not familiar with. Hope that it is good. The film has been restored by *AMPAS,* and unlike the debut the other night, I believe there should be 35 materials of *THE HOODLUM* to draw from. Here's hoping for a crisp new print. Don't forget to tune in or record the broadcast! This picture has not yet been released on DVD.

Gagman . . . this is such a beautiful & rich portrait

of our Mary pickford . . .

and such a classic pose of the turn of the century look . . .

Roses, Ribbons, Laces, Pearls & Curls . . .

She's absolutely stunning & possesses such an enduring look.

Wonderful colors, Gagman.

Thank you for posting,

Sincerely,

Ugaarte

P.S. i'm going to make sure I catch 'The Hoodlum'.

I'm looking forward to seeing it tonight.

ugaarte,

 

Yes, I love the photo with the Finch. I think it is from *DADDY LONG LEGS,* because I seem to remember a sequence like that? I haven't seen it in a number of years though and do not recall for sure? There doesn't seem to be much similarity between the Pickford and Temple films. They are essentially two completely different stories with the same title. I believe Shirley's movie was released in 1939 and was filmed in Technicolor.

 

Interesting about your father. My dad loved his Finch's, and had feeders in both the front and back yards when I was a kid. So many different colors. My Father wasn't born until 1932, but He's been gone now for 13 years, and my Mother passed on 8 years ago this past October.

 

I added several photos to the old HOLLYWOOD REVUE of 1929 Thread that you might not have seen yet.

Hi Gagman . . .

 

What a Wonderful Memory, among others I'm sure,

of colorful ceramic Birds, which she had all over our house.

WITH THEM. aND My Dad passed away 11 years ago in Sept '99 ...

I miss them both VERY MUCH.

ugaarte,

 

Whoops, my mistake on the Shirley Temple movie. I was of course mixing up *POOR LITTLE RICH GIRL* with *THE LITTLE PRINCESS.* for some reason. But hey I do the same with Mary Pickford's versions too! Anyway, you were correct about 1936 for Shirley's version. Did you get to see *THE HOODLUM?*
