Heart O' the Hills Details


This film was one of [[Performer~P56706~Mary Pickford~marypickford]]'s attempts to add at least a touch of maturity to her little girl characterizations. She is a Kentucky mountain girl in this romantic adventure film, and [[Performer~P27708~Harold Goodwin~haroldgoodwin]] is the boy who befriends her. [[Performer~P17746~Sam DeGrasse~samdegrasse]] was the villain. Future silent-screen idol [[Performer~P26852~Jack Gilbert~jackgilbert]] also had a small role. While Heart O' the Hills received politely positive reviews and some interest surrounded Pickford's more mature role (the character was teen-aged; Mary herself was 27), there were no real raves. After this, Pickford firmly returned to the security of her more youthful portrayals -- her next film was [[Feature~V38626~Pollyanna~pollyanna]]. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
