Mary Pickford
Collection

(1917-1925)
 

Contents: The Poor Little Rich Girl (1917), Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1917), Pollyanna (1920) and Little Annie Rooney (1925).

This budget collection of Mary Pickford films features a couple of previously unreleased films in it, but the low quality should make collectors think twice about acquiring it.

Ratings (1-10): video: 5 / audio: 5 / additional content: 5 / overall: 5.

With two previously unreleased (on DVD) Pickford titles on it, the temptation will be to purchase this low-budget release of four Pickford films, but don't expect much from a disc that has been selling on eBay for around $5.00.

For our reviews of each presentation, see our Poor Little Rich Girl on home video page, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm on home video page, Pollyanna on home video page, and Little Annie Rooney on home video page.

This cheap edition is not really recommended, but, for now, it is the only DVD edition of Pollyanna and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.
