A Little Princess with harpist Leslie McMichael
Join us for a special event featuring the Mary Pickford classic about a wealthy young girl whose life changes when her father dies (later remade with Shirley Temple, and again in 1995) with an enchanting live harp score performed by harpist-composer Leslie McMichael

Sara Crewe (Mary Pickford) is a wealthy young girl who is sent away to a boarding school in London.  It's not long before Sara wins the friendship of the other students as well as the school's maid, Becky (ZaSu Pitts), who is included in Sara's nighttime story telling.  When Sara's father dies and his fortune is lost Sara is reduced to becoming a servant for the school herself, and finds out who are really her true friends. (USA, 1917, 62 min., b/w)

Silent film star Mary Pickford was America's Sweetheart in the early years of Hollywood cinema. Her leading role in A Little Princess, was the first film rendition of the beloved children's novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett and showcased Mary's expressive acting and iconic golden curls. The film also marked the beginning of a long creative collaboration with screenwriter Frances Marion. Both Pickford and Marion were powerful film making pioneers in a new industry which was fertile ground for a generation of women who wrote, directed and produced movies for an eager public. This screening of the silent classic A Little Princess will be brought to life by harpist Leslie McMichael's live accompaniment on concert, Celtic and electric harps.

"With three different kinds of harps, McMichael creates a soundscape that is both varied in texture and tone, alternating between the various sounds with cinematic panache." -Rivet Magazine
