A disappointingly conventional career recap of the silent era's preeminent female star and businesswoman.

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.

If you are interested in Pickford herself or just in the early history of the Hollywood film industry, this is an enthralling documentary.

A treasure chest of information about the early days of filmmaking and the contributions of 'America's Sweetheart' to the history of cinema.

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).

Muse Of The Movies is assembled with such thoroughness, respect and care you can't help but be awed by Pickford's remarkable achievements.
