Spanning the years from 1914 to 1969, we see friendship blossom between Mary Pickford and her scenarist Frances Marion. They forge a partnership that has its ups and downs and shows us the evolution of movies and the Hollywood culture. Along the way we have glimpses of other on-screen greats like Charlie Chaplin and Douglas Fairbanks. Benjamin did her research and as she mentions in her Author's Note, had to pick and choose what to feature in her book. It was fascinating to see these two women adapt and change as their business is transformed from silent feature films to "talkies" and beyond. Well worth the read!
