Critic Reviews for Mary Pickford: The Muse of the Movies
A disappointingly conventional career recap of the silent era's preeminent female star and businesswoman.
There's added star power here - which also includes wattage from show-ups by Chaplin, D.W. Griffith, Lillian Gish (and in one amazing talking clip, a visit to the couple's Pickfair mansion by Amelia Earhart and husband).
The Muse of the Movies accomplishes two things: It presents a straightforward and somewhat hagiographical biography of Pickford's early life and film career, and it includes a lot of clips from her films, thus whetting the viewer's appetite for more.
Mary Pickford: Muse of the Movies deserves to be put on the list of not just the best documentaries about cinema but the greatest movies about the movies ever.
...an extraordinarily well put-together film, narrated by Michael York and skillfully incorporating a real treasure trove of archival materials, including many audio interviews with Pickford.
