      Having acted in 52 films, Mary Pickford’s international stardom helped define the concept of modern celebrity. An adroit businesswoman, in 1916 she signed a contract with Famous Players-Lasky that gave her control over any of the movies she starred in and a record-breaking salary of $500 a week. Later she founded United Artists with D. W. Griffith, Douglas Fairbanks, and Charlie Chaplin. #film

    Mary Pickford was a silent film star and one of the earliest female film directors ever. She was insanely famous, and started the studio United Artists with her very famous husband Douglas Fairbanks and someone else you might know called Charlie Chaplin. She had a lot wealth and power and was barely five feet tall.
