It’s easy to love Mary as a film star and as a person. She’s one of those people who had that special something that’s hard to describe. She was never a great beauty, but she had a sweetness about her than I and many millions of others over the last 100+ years find endearing.

This book does a good job of highlighting Mary’s career and to a lesser extent the woman off the screen. The photos make it worth buying a physical copy, which I’d like to do at some point. I read this for free on the Internet Archive’s Open Library.
