A Little Princess (1917) With an original score performed live by harpist-composer Leslie McMichael


Silent film star Mary Pickford was America’s Sweetheart in the early years of Hollywood cinema. Her leading role in “A Little Princess,” was the first film rendition of the beloved children’s novel and showcased Mary’s expressive acting and iconic golden curls. The film also marked the beginning of a long creative collaboration with screenwriter Frances Marion. Both Pickford and Marion were powerful film making pioneers in a new industry which was fertile ground for a generation of women who wrote, directed and produced movies for an eager public. This screening of the silent classic “A Little Princess” will be brought to life by harpist Leslie McMichael’s live accompaniment on concert, Celtic and electric harps. Leslie’s lovely new score was commissioned by Northwest Film Forum for its recent children’s film festival.
