Through The Back Door

   After the death of Olive Thomas, Jack Pickford decided to be behind the camera for 1921. Here, he is seen directing his sister Mary in Through The Back Door.

A black band can be seen on Jacks arm — he was still mourning the loss of Olive.

  1. Hi Amy, I write article on from time to time.I often interview people and get their stories. I write about Anaheim and things connected to it. I know this has nothing to do with your above post, but I was wondering if you had any silent film era memories linked to Orange County that you would be willing to share. It’s close enough to LA County that there has been plenty of filming there in the past.
