The film is organized in nine “chapters”, corresponding to the nine muses, and surveys the career of Mary Pickford (1892-1979) in the larger context of the explosive growth of the cinema and Hollywood in her working lifetime – a phenomenon to which her career and international superstar status contributed immeasurably. Apart from her unique place in the evolution of the star system – she was the first to earn a million dollars a year, to have her name on the marquee, and to win a Best Actress Oscar for a sound film (Coquette) – she was a shrewd businesswoman and a force in industry politics. She was a co-founder of United Artists and a major influence in the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and of the Motion Picture Retirement Home.» – David Robinson, Giornate del Cinema Muto, Pordenone 2008
