As I was rummaging through my old autographs I ran across this Mary Pickford photo in her Little Lord Fauntleroy costume that she inscribed to author Elinor Glyn ("It", Beyond the Rocks), which I've been meaning to share. The date looks at first glance like 1981 which can't be right since both Pickford and Glyn were dead by then (very long dead in Glyn's case), but if you look closely what appears to be an '8' is actually a loopy '2' so it's actually from 1921, or roughly contemporary with the movie.
