"Catch My Star Blog" Teaser For May

This blog teaser is for a lady that I do not have an original cigarette silk for. But she is being added to my "Catch My Star" quilt anyway. Mary Pickford WAS the original celebrity, back in a time where men ruled she came out on top! From reading about her she had a drive and determination that was a force to be reckoned with! I hope you enjoy learning about her as much as I did.

Teaser Questions:

1) What was the very first acting job that Mary Pickford had? What was the name of the play?

2)What was her very first Broadway role? Who wrote the play? Who was his famous brother?

3)What was the name of the film studio that she helped to found? What famous person was the co-founder of the studio?
What famous Academy did she help found? Name five other founders of this Academy.



First bonus question:

Mary Pickford was the first "mega star"! Tom Cruse and Michael Jackson have nothing on this lady!

What was Mary Pickford locked in to keep fans from hurting her? In what city was this incident in?

Second bonus question:

Mary Pickford was married to Douglas Fairbanks. She was not the mother of Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Who was Douglas Fairbanks Jr.'s mother?

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Served in WWII. What branch of the service did he serve in? What was his rank? How many citations did he receive?

************************************************************

My Prizes are as follows:

The first person to get all the teaser questions right gets a squishie loaded with goodies plus a silkie of Mary Pickford.

The second person who gets all the teaser questions right gets a silkie of Mary Pickford.

The bonus question's:
