Episode Summary

April 15, 1980

Host Tom Snyder's guests are Carmel Meyers and Mary Brian, Silent Screen stars and friends of Mary Pickford, discuss Mary and how they came to know her as well as the various rooms of her famous house "Pickfair" where she lived with husband Douglas Fairbanks and Buddy Rogers and Stepson Douglas Fairbanks Jr. They both met her on the sets of movies where they worked with Valentino and Fairbanks. They say that she used to have great parties where royalty would attend but that she was never the stuffy celebrity that people believed her to be. Brian paints on commission and Meyers has her own perfume business. Buddy Rogers and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. discuss their personal lives with Pickford. Fairbanks says that he did not get along too well with his father so that he did not live there much until after the War. He got along well with Mary and says she was always a lady as well as possessing a great sense of humor. He says that it was hard to get acting parts because of whose son he was and that even after he was established he stayed away from action films until his father had been gone from the scene a long time. Rogers says that the house is for sale now for ten million dollars. He made a deal with Mary that neither of them would live there if the other one was gone. He says that he wanted to live in his home on the Rivera and did for a few months but that Mary got lonely for Pickfair and so they moved back. He shows Mary's two Oscars one for "Coquette" in '29 and the honorary Award of '76.
