One of the great silent movies starring Oscar winner Mary Pickford. It was her last silent movie. As shop girl Maggie Johnson, she works in a five and dime department store where she meets and falls for the handsome Joe Grant, played by Charles “Buddy” Rogers, who is actually working incognito as the store owner’s son, Joe Merrill. My Best Girl was the end of an era for Mary as film was transforming itself from silents to sound. This romantic comedy is one of Mary’s finest movies and played an even more significant role in her personal life as she divorced husband Douglas Fairbanks and married co-star in My Best Girl – Buddy Rogers.

Accompanied by the Gardner sisters
