Gertrude Astor in Through the Back Door

Through the Back Door

1921 NR

Jeanne (Mary Pickford) gets the short end of the stick when her widowed mother marries a wealthy New Yorker, who packs his stepdaughter off to a Belgian nurse to raise the child. Years later, when Jeanne's sufficiently contrite mother comes around looking for the child, the nurse lies and says she died in a drowning accident. World War I then breaks out, complicating things tremendously. This video also includes Pickford's 1914 film, Cinderella.
