Set at the dawn of Hollywood, The Girls in the Picture explores the friendship and creative partnership between two of Hollywood’s earliest female legends – screenwriter Frances Marion and superstar Mary Pickford. The two ambitious young women hit it off instantly, their kinship fomented by their mutual fever to create. But their ambitions are challenged both by the men around them and the limitations imposed on their gender—and their astronomical success could come at a price.

Pickford Film Center Marketing Director Lindsey Gerhard will interview Melanie Benjamin, who is the author of best-selling novels including The Swans of New York and The Aviator’s Wife. She lives in the Chicago area with her husband and is currently at work on her next historical novel. The Feb. 1 Radio Hour includes live music from cellists Coral Marchant and David Jones accompanied by advanced students of Marchant’s Cello Studio Choir.
