7¼x8½ sepia image of Mary Pickford's sister, with a hat and fur wrap. A rare signature!
Photograph signed: "Sincerely/Lottie Pickford". Sepia, 7¼x8½. Lottie Pickford (1895-1936), born Charlotte Smith, was born in Canada one year after his sister Mary. Like her acting brother Jack, she adopted the name of Pickford after Mary made it famous. Lottie Pickford was an actor herself, debuting on stage with Mary in The Silver King (1900). Her relationship with Mary was always strained, and was not helped when Lottie's first starring role was as a prostitute in The House of Bondage (1914), a movie which did not mesh well with Mary Pickford's image as "America's Sweetheart". Mary, said to consider Lottie untalented and unattractive, discouraged studios from hiring her. She had 86 film credits, but all but 8 of them were shorts. Lottie was known for her wild parties. Three of her four marriages ended in divorce, and her daughter was raised by her mother. The three Pickford siblings, Mary, Lottie and Jack, made only one film together, Fauchon, the Cricket (1915), a long lost film recently rediscovered by the British Film Institute. Lottie Pickford's last film was in brother-in-law Douglas Fairbanks' vehicle, Don Q Son of Zorro (1925). She died of a heart attack at age 43, and is buried in the Pickford family plot at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Glendale, California. Lightly silvered. Bottom left corner torn. Edges and corners creased and worn. Two small holes at top edge (not affecting signature). Multiple surface creases (lightly affecting signature). Minor unknown residue on verso (no show-through). Otherwise, fine condition.
