This photo is unique in that it is candid and it is a photo with both Mary Pickford and Lillian Gish. Mary and Lillian were best friends before either of them was famous. When Mary Pickford began acting she soon became a star and she introduced her friend to D.W. Griffith. When Mary moved on and did bigger projects on her own, D.W. Griffith continued to use Lillian in many of his productions. She became Mary's replacement. Ms. Pickford and Ms. Gish remained lifelong friends. They both fostered wholesome images in an era of young actresses who were known as "America's Sweethearts". This would contrast greatly with the "Age of the Vamps" that would soon CT848.
