Mary & Jack Pickford ~ Tom Sawyer & The Pride of the Clan (1917)

Mary Pickford ~ Hollywood’s FIRST film superstar and her brother Tom were both major stars in the silent film era.

While Tom would never reach the stardom, acclaim and accolades afforded his multi-talented sister - he was an actor of note with his charm and matinee idol good looks.

Alcohol and drug addiction would end his career in a minor scandal.
