    Mary Pickford - United Artists (Maryland)
    This 1956 certificate in brown and black for 100 shares in United Artists is issued to and signed on an accompanying stock power by Mary Pickford Rogers, a leading star of the silent film era who was affectionately known as "America's Sweetheart." She played numerous children's roles and later made a successful transition as an adult actress, winning the 1928-29 Academy Award for Best Actress. United Artists was formed in 1919 by Pickford, along with Charlie Chaplin, D.W. Griffith and Douglas Fairbanks to counter the growing domination of the movie industry by the production companies. There is a punch cancellation slightly affecting Pickford's signature. New, and an important piece of movie industry history, associating the Pickford signature with the United Artists venture in which she was an original principal.
