Michael York

True-blue British actor, Michael YORK has arrived in Pordenone, Northern Italy, with his wife Pat, to introduce MARY PICKFORD, the MUSE, a new comprehensive documentary on the silent film diva, directed by Nicholas Eliopoulos.


   The couple, which spends months touring around the world for their professions, make Los Angeles their home now. Pat, a seasoned photographer, has published several books of her works and is heading for the Frankfurt Book Fair following the Cinema Muto Event after 4 days at the Antalya Film Festival in Turkey where Michael York is a special guest.


  They will also be present in the Vatican for a special screening of the Polish documentary TESTIMONY, on the life of Pope John Paul II, equally narrated by York, in the presence of Pope Benedict. The first documentary to obtain authorisation for shooting in the Vatican, was completed recently.


Further plans are to attend the Hot Springs Documentary Festival in Arkansas, the oldest documentary film festival in the U.S.A for a special Award he will receive.


   Mary Pickford, The Muse of the Movies traces the life and work of this legendary silent film star, movie pioneer, and keen businesswoman.    Pickford’s life (1892-1979) also  parallels an even larger story, telling of the “birth of the cinema” itself.  Pickford co-created United Artists Studios, spearheaded the founding of the Academy of Motion
Picture Arts and Sciences, as well as established the Motion Picture Retirement Home. 

   Mary, known as “America’s Sweetheart” was the first actress to earn one million dollars,  and only star to ever receive a 50% profit share of her movies.  She was the first actor, male or female, to have her name placed on the Cinema’s marquee along with the film’s title, and she was the first to win an Oscar for Best Actress in a “sound” motion picture for her performance in the 1929 film “Coquette”.   In 1976, Mary was presented with her
second Academy Award for her humanitarian work.

In this documentary, through restored vintage audio recordings, Pickford narrates her own story along with actor Michael York. Classic film clips, rare home movies, and cameo interviews with Adolph Zukor (founder of Paramount Studios), famed aviator Amelia Earhart, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Lillian Gish, Buddy Rogers (Pickford’s last husband), as
well as the only interview ever given by Pickford’s daughter, Roxanne Rogers Monroe, give the viewer an in depth look into the early world of the American cinema
