The Girls in the Picture

A fascinating novel of the friendship and creative partnership between two of Hollywood’s earliest female legends-screenwriter Frances Marion and superstar Mary Pickford. The two ambitious young women shared a mutual fever to create, to move audiences to a frenzy, to start a revolution. But their ambitions are challenged by both the men around them and the limitations imposed on their gender- and their astronomical success could come at a price. With cameos from such notables as Charlie Chaplin, Louis B. Mayer, Rudolph Valentino and Lillian Gish.
