Hazel Simpson Naylor Motion Picture Magazine Even our beloved and serious- minded Mary Pickfcrd errs in this, her latest production, in trying to jam an emotion, or rather an effect, down our throats. Nov 14, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member The best inspiring movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member pickford's first UA release and first million dollar $ maker Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member A short swift Mary Pickford film made about the famous novel Pollyanna that was remade many times. Despite her childlike performance she is undeniable presence on screen & in many ways the prefect actress for this role. The story is wildly sentimental & cliche but it's still enjoyable & Mary's remarkable talent reigns through. A must see of hers if your a fan. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
