Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes; Title supplied by cataloger.
Mary Pickford was a Canadian-born silent film actress, famously known as "America's sweetheart," co-founder of American Artists film studio, and one of the original founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Photograph caption dated May 30, 1955 reads "Photograph of Mary Pickford and Valley Times drama editor (Len Boyd) taken recently at a news conference at which time she thought she had Sam Goldwyn licked in the United Artists Studio ownership fight. But she lost. In her autobiography, she reveals the longstanding feud between the two--as well as other tragic events. Read the adjacent Harold Heffernan column for details."
