Fun Pickford
100% American (1918)

*** (out of 4)

This here is another WW1 short trying to get American's to donate money but the big difference here is that the film uses Hollywood talent. Mary Pickford, Loretta Blake and Monte Blue lead the cast for this Famous-Players production. The film shows Pickford cutting back on spending habits so that she can give that money for war bonds instead. Instead of buying an ice cream she just settles for water. Instead of buying a new dress she simply wears an old one and so on. This film here uses a lot of humor to get its message across and this can be seen in Pickford's performance, which comes off very good and quite funny. The scene with her in the store lusting over the ice cream was incredibly funny but the ending to the film is pretty weak. The movie runs 14-minutes and is entertaining throughout, although the message is repeated one too many times.
