Mary Pickford Dances Into Adulthood With Rosita

PostMon May 28, 2018 11:08 pm

Mary Pickford stepped into adult film roles with "Rosita," at the same time as she ceded direct creative control to director Ernst Lubitsch. While she and the film received mostly fine reviews, so compared her unfavorably to Pola Negri, finding Pickford a charming gamine while describing Negrl as a passionate, earthy woman.

We are all glad that she played adult roles to avoid typecasting by end of the era.

Great article! Thanks!
