Well, the last round of voting in the 1918 movie star tournament has concluded and we have a winner! In fact, we have the same winner that the good people of 1918 crowned: Mary Pickford.
Yes, Mary Pickford has been voted top movie star in 1918 and 2018. She beat out Douglas Fairbanks by a healthy 63% to his 37%.
Mary Pickford’s reputation has been on the rise lately with more and more modern folks coming to appreciate her status as a pioneering producer, studio exec, writer and star. (Not that she was ever entirely forgotten by her fans.)
If you’d like to see the star in action, here is a collection of clips courtesy of the Mary Pickford Foundation. And don’t forget that Fanchon the Cricket and Little Annie Rooney are being released by Flicker Alley soon!
Well, I had a lot of fun with this. Thank you so much for voting and commenting and we will definitely be doing this next year. (With a Canadian twist! How do you like my teasing clickbait?)
