In association with the Library of Congress, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and Glendale Arts, AFS presents a screening of the restored silent classic, Sparrows, Mary Pickford’s 1926 dramatic story of abused orphans.
The 35mm print will be accompanied by a live organ performance.
Preceding the feature will be They Will Elope and The Trick That Failed, two of the fifty-two films Mary Pickford made in 1909, her first year in the industry. This will be the first Los Angeles screening of these newly restored prints by the Library of Congress.
Displayed in the lobby will be artifacts from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County’s extensive motion picture collection including Mary Pickford’s curls; the paste jewel encrusted headdress and prop curling iron from Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall (1924), and an exhibitor’s herald from Ramona (1909).
