Pirates of the Great Salt Lake trailer. I don't usually post trailers for movies but this made me giggle.

Oscar -winning actress Mary Pickford (1893-1979) became "America's Sweetheart" playing young girls in the movies. To make Pickford look small, the sets and props in her movies were built larger than normal.

Huh. That's better than the current practice of using underfed adults to play kids. (Okay. I know they aren't always starved adults, but, damn it!)

What are some examples? Illuminate me! :)

Eh. I was being a bit melodramatic about it. Still, I think some movie kids (and adults) need to eat!

Re: Mary Pickford's sets. See, another reason I probably would have been a monsterously successful actress if it were 1934 lol

Ok, your icon ROCKS. I always got so angry when my whole frickin' family drowned in the river, as if I knew it was going to be so deep.


So angry...

Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck!
