Summary The Girls in the Picture ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF StormMary Pickford becomes known as the “ueen of the Movies” the first actor to have her name on a movie maruee and the first to become a truly international celebrity Mary and her husband Douglas Fairbanks were America’s first Royal Couple living in a home famous that Buckingham Palace Mary won the first Academy Award for Best Actress in a Talkie and was the first to put her hand and footprints in Grauman’s theater sidewalk Her annual salary in 1919 was 625000 at a time when women’s salaries peaked at 10 a week Frances Marion is widely conside. 35 stars rounded up to 4I loved reading about these two trailblazing women in the filming industry Mary Pickford America s Sweetheart and Frances Marion a renowned female screenwriter known as a scenarist in the early days and the first to win two Academy Awards The early days of Hollywood and the transition from silent films the flickers to talkies was riveting reading What these two women accomplished over a century ago in a male dominated world was nothing short of amazing The historical details of how movies were made in the early days of Hollywood and the formation of the major studios was interesting readingThe book is narrated by Frances with the reader learning about Mary Pickford through Frances s eyes Even though Mary s story suffers a little from being told in the third person the character development is excellent and the enormous amount of research the author did on these two women is impressive I thoroughly enjoyed this part of the book and found it fascinating They were two determined accomplished women who forged a friendship and alliance and we follow them through the heady early days into old ageThe book lost a star from me because it got bogged down in melodrama and angst with some flowery melodramatic dialogue and at close to 450 pages it was a bit overly long Still the strengths outweigh the negatives and I highly recommend the book I appreciated the epilogue where the author explains her research and where she took literary license thank you to Netgalley Random House publishing and the author for an e galley of the book in exchange for an honest review

Summary The Girls in the Picture ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Red one of the most important female screenwriters of the 20th century and was the first writer to win multiple Academy Awards The close personal friendship between the two stars was closely linked to their professional collaboration and successThis is a novel about power the power of women during the exhilarating early years of Hollywood and the power of forgiveness It’s also about the imbalance of power then and now and the sacrifices and compromises women must make in order to succeed And at its heart it’s a novel about the power of female friendsh. I love Old Hollywood movies historical fiction and this author s last book The Swans of Fifth Avenue was an enchanting five star read for me Maybe all of that set my expectations too high but while I loved learning about Mary Pickford France Marion and the beginnings of the movie industry it was in the telling of the story that this book didn t uite work as well as her previous There was an unevenness to the narrative mostly due to the choice of alternating perspectives one much stronger and endearing than the other which made for a bumpy rideMany of the themes had scenes from old movies popping in my head from All About Eve to Sunset Boulevard and even the creepy scenes from Whatever Happened to Baby Jane I told you I love Old Hollywood movies which made for a feeling of d j vu Not a bad thing since Benjamin was weaving a Hollywood tale and just as music sets the mood for some visual memories create a tapestry for meThis novel worked best when it provided glimpses into the industry Cecil B DeMille was a tyrant Samuel Goldwyn s name was originally Goldfish and so much but not as well when exploring the psychological make up of these women who birthed an industry Mary Pickford especially This was the woman who along with Chaplin and Fairbanks created United Artists who helped found the Academy of Arts and Sciences and who was for many years the ueen of Hollywood alongside her king Douglas Fairbanks Yet her portrait here with all her laudable accomplishments doesn t uite connectThe dedication for this book thanks someone for rescuing this novel from the slush pile and I m left to wonder if it was rushed to publication after the success of Swans and maybe could have used a bit polish Nevertheless the historical aspects were fascinating and Ms Benjamin provides a trove of books to consider for further reading many of which she used in her research so of a 35 but lacking some of the entertainment that made her previous book so compelling
