About This Item

Hollywood, California, 1923; Vintage 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" b&w silver gelatin photograph by Knute Olaf Rahmn of Mary Pickford in the role of "Rosita" in the 1923 silent film of the same name directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Pickford had long tired of being type cast in children’s roles, which she was forced to portray even after reaching adulthood, and "Rosita" was a personal project designed as a breakout vehicle for her first appearance in an adult part. A beautiful photograph of perhaps the most important film actress of all time, whose talent and business acumen were pivotal in the formation of the new order in Hollywood, which included the star system and the concept of the first-run feature film. Signed "Cordially, Mary Pickford" in stamped purple facsimile autograph, a practice in use by Pickford and other popular film stars of the time as a practical means of keeping up with the large demand for photos from fans. Excellent condition, with a full rich tonal range. Clean, crisp, bright, no chips or tears. Some slight silvering at the outer margins. Signed in the negative by the photographer at lower right.
