LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY
Tickets $8 for children 12 and under
Mary Pickford plays a "tomboy of the tenements" in this comedy drama, which she also wrote. Filmed over ten weeks, LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY was shot entirely on a set created by art director John DuCasse Schulze at the Pickford Fairbanks Studio. Co-starring William Haines and a wide-ranging, multi-ethnic cast, LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY met with huge critical and commercial success upon its original release, proving fans and critics alike wanted the then-33-year-old Pickford to stay a child forever. Created from the original tinted nitrate print in Pickford's personal collection at the Library of Congress, LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY was preserved photochemically by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Film Archive. A new 35mm preservation master was then scanned at 4K high definition so that the Mary Pickford Foundation, in cooperation with AMPAS, could create a digital version to perfectly match the original nitrate tints and tones. The Mary Pickford Foundation commissioned Andy Gladbach to compose a new original soundtrack, performed by a 12-piece orchestra including three percussionists. (Note courtesy of Flicker Alley.) DIR William Beaudine; SCR/PROD Mary Pickford; SCR Hope Loring, Louis D. Lighton. U.S., 1925, b&w, 94 min. NOT RATED
