Mary Pickford

Born in Toronto in 1893, "America's Sweetheart" began her acting career on stage at the age of five. Her first film was released 11 years later. Pickford's golden curls and children's roles, which she played well into her adult life, endeared her to millions of cinema-goers. She died in 1979.
