    Thank you so much for such an informative and FAIR look at the scandals surrounding Jack Pickford. It can be so disheartening to see rumors and sometimes outright lies printed over and over again nearly a hundred years later. Jack was such a great actor, and you are so right that he did not get all his work through his sister, in fact when he set out to get jobs on his own he did some of his finest work. I really appreciate this attempt to sort through the tabloid gossip (some conclude was largely started by Flo Ziegfeld) against him. He deserves to be remembered for his work.

    Thanks for posting a well researched, informative look on Jack! It feels good to know there’s people out there who want to get to know Jack – not the bash Jack and Olive gushing that goes on all the time.
