Once Considered a Lost Classic of the Silent Film Era
Based on the 'adult fairy tale' by George Sand, Fanchon the Cricket stars Mary Pickford as the title character, a strong-willed waif ostracized by 'acceptable society' until she shows them the power of love and understanding. Directed by James Kirkwood and boasting exquisite cinematography by Edward Wynard, Fanchon the Cricket was filmed on location in Delaware Gap, Pennsylvania. A natural, sensual and uninhibited Pickford breaks through today's stereotype of her as 'the girl with the curls.' It is also the only surviving film in which both Jack and Lottie Pickford appear with their sister.
Once believed to be a lost film, Fanchon the Cricket's restoration is the result of a unique international collaboration between the Mary Pickford Foundation, the Cinematheque Francaise and the British Film Institute. A new negative and 35mm prints were created from the restored digital version, and the Mary Pickford Foundation paired the film with a new, original score by Julian Ducatenzeiler and Andy Gladbach.
