Mary Pickford (Used to Eat Roses)

I must admit to never having heard of Katie Melua before, but after stumbling across her video on YouTube, while searching for some of Mary Pickford's early short works (not the best place to see them but when they are unavailable elsewhere...), I have become somewhat obsessed with her - or at least her one song, Mary Pickford (Used to Eat Roses) - watching it several dozen times over the past few days.  One must wonder why someone would write a pop song about the formation of United Artists, but hey, my love of film history, and my current passion about America's Sweetheart (and the fact that it is a surprisingly catchy ditty) makes me somewhat gaga over it (not to mention Melua isn't bad to look at either).

Watch the video HERE.

Yes this is late in coming but just saw this post.

If you're interested is some of her films you can find them here: http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=Mary%20Pickford%20AND%20mediatype%3Amovies

Prelinger's Archives is one of the best for stuff in the public domain.
