Here's my new quote of the day: If you want to get to know someone, read their obituary. Who said it? Me. Just now. (It's been a long night.)
I thought I'd introduce you to one of my all-time heroes--Mary Pickford. I just found her official obituary, and I thought I would share it with you.
Mary was an amazing person who worked hard her whole life.
You can watch a short film featuring her and a desire for a new hat. It sounds silly, but it's really touching. It's called "The New York Hat" (1912).
Wishing the best to you!
I'm the author of a number of cemetery books and am now writing one about the graves of silent film stars, starting with the ladies. Who would you like to see included?
