In LITTLE ANNIE ROONEY, Pickford plays a tomboy of the tenements who tends to her brother and widowed father in a multi-ethnic New York neighborhood, recreated entirely on the backlot of the Pickford Fairbanks studio in Hollywood. Her crush on a young man (William Haines) from a rival gang results in complications when he is charged with murder. Pickford produced, starred in and wrote this comedy (under the pen name of Catherine Hennessey).
Seeking Our Story screens historic films directed by women. Each month we highlight a different director in our Los Angeles based film club.

We recently joined the Rack Focus initiative at the American Cinematheque in Hollywood and now present screenings through their historic Egyptian Theatre and the Santa Monica Aero theater. Ticket sales benefit the Cinematheque which is a 501c3 non-profit.
We partner with Women In Media for networking before each screening. Meet people looking for crew, let people know you're available, or tell folks about your projects. All are welcome. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
