1 PICKFORD, MARY Typed Letter Signed from Mary Pickford to Film Director Alfred E. Green
Los Angeles 1 page, quarto March 18, 1922 
Written on Pickford's blindstamped monogramed stationery: “We ran your picture ‘Come On Over' at the house the other night and all of us were wild about it. I think it is one of the charming picture I have ever scene - perfect taste, excellent casting, wonderful photograph and superb direction. It gave me great happiness to think that you had achieved this wonderful success. Do drop over and see our new studio some time when you have a few minutes off. Douglas [Fairbanks Sr.] joins me in sending kindest regards to you and Mrs. Green.” Minor creases from folding, else fine. In 1921, the year before this letter, Green directed Mary Picture in two of her better feature films, Through the Back Door and Little Lord Fauntleroy. The film Pickford is referring to in the little was a Colleen Moore feature that Green directed just after finishing his work with Pickford. Alfred E. Green (1889 - 1960) directed some of the brightest stars of his time, including Wallace Reid, Colleen Moore, and Bette Davis who won a Best Actress Oscar for her role in his 1935 film Dangerous. He is otherwise best known for his films Baby Face (1933) with Barbara Stanwyck and George Brent, The Jolson Story (1946) with Larry Parks, Evelyn Keyes, and William Demarest, and The Jackie Robinson Story (1950) with Jackie Robinson, Ruby Dee, and Minor Robinson. He made his last feature, Top Banana, with Phil Silvers in 1954 and spent the remainder of his career directing episodic TV series.
