Sparrows

Sparrows

A film by William Beaudine
Starring Mary Pickford, Roy Stewart, Mary Louise Miller

The movie boasts highly stylized sets, including an ominous-looking swamp, and atmospheric cinematography that illustrates the growing influence of German expressionist cinema on American filmmakers in the 1920s. One of the Mary Pickford’s darker-themed pictures, the film is considered by many to be her best, including by her business partner and onscreen rival Charlie Chaplin.

Sparrows, Mary Pickford’s 1926 release, superbly combines the two elements—sentiment and adventure—that characterized Pickford’s best work.New York Times
