Academy Award winner Mary Pickford plays a tomboy of the tenements facing a crisis of the heart when the boy she loves is accused of shooting her policeman father in this classic comedy drama.

Shot entirely on set at the Pickford-Fairbanks Studio (one of two studios she would co-found - the other being United Artists) the film, also written by Pickford, co-stars William Haines and a wide-ranging, multi-ethnic cast. Met with huge critical and commercial success upon its original release, it proved fans and critics alike wanted the then 33-year old Mary to stay a child forever.

With an introduction by presenter and Pickford admirer, Chris Serle. With live piano accompaniment.
