Two images from the art deco era of a movie marquee. The first movie features famous actress Mary Pickford as Kiki. First is Mary in 'But oh - What a Gal Is Mary as Kiki' and the second featuring 'Street Scene', Elmer Rice's Pulitzer Prize winning play. Each 8 x 10, one with one side missing a portion of the margin; does not detract from image. Both have Lewis F. Nathan backstamps. Pickford was born Gladys Marie Smith on April 9,1893, in Toronto, Ontario and died May 29, 1979. She was known as 'America's Sweetheart' (and in Europe as 'the World's Sweetheart'). As a child Pickford acted in a Toronto stock company which lead to leading roles in New York productions by David Belasco. She began her film career in Her First Biscuits (1907), followed by The Violin Maker of Cremona (1910), both directed by D. W. Griffith. And, became one of the most popular stars in the history of film.
