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.; Freddie Bartholomew was born in London and later became a U.S. citizen. He was one of the most famous child actors in the 1930s. His most famous starring roles were in "Captains Courageous" (1937) and "Little Lord Fauntleroy" (1936). Bartholomew's career waned in his teenage years, and after several films and serving in the armed forces, he became a television producer and director, working on such shows as "The Andy Griffith show", "As the world turns", and "Search for tomorrow". He died in Sarasota, Florida in 1992.
