Pickford was one of the Canadian pioneers in early Hollywood and a significant figure in the development of film acting.

Unhappy with their creative standards, Pickford returned to work with Griffith in 1912.
Some of her best performances were in his films, such as Friends, The Mender of Nets, Just Like a Woman, and The Female of the Species.
She quickly grasped that movie acting was simpler than the stylized stage acting of the day.
Most Biograph actors earned $5 a day but, after Pickford's single day in the studio, Griffith agreed to pay her $10 a day against a guarantee of $40 a week.
She was awarded the second ever Academy Award for Best Actress for her first sound film role in Coquette (1929) and also received an honorary Academy Award in 1976.
