LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 30, 1979
* Mary Pickford death (1st report)
* Canadian-American film movie actress
* "America's Sweetheart" "Girl with the Curls"
* Best title to be had ?
The middle of the front page has a two column head: "Mary Pickford, 86, World's First Real Movie Star, Dies" which includes two photos of her as well. The article carries over to page 3 where is found two more photos of her.
Known in her prime as "America's Sweetheart"and the "girl with the curls", Pickford was one of the pioneers in early Hollywood. Pickford was one of the most popular actresses of the 1910s and 1920s, earning the nickname "Queen of the Movies".
Great to have this report not only in a newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry, but from the city where she lived & died.
The complete first section with pages 1-30, very nice, clean condition.
