  • The Girls in the Picture by Melanie Benjamin is a 2018 Delacorte Press publication I love tales from old Hollywood the silent pictures, the scandals, the innovations and vision that are felt throughout the industry to this day This story zeroes in on the tumultuous friendship between movie star Mary Pickford and screenwriter, Frances Marion I loved the way Benjamin gives Frances such real and believable voice as she regales us with the beginning days of flickers and the way her friendship The Gi [...]


  • This is a novel I will be recommending to everyone Historical fiction, The Girls in the Picture is a book for everyone who has an interest in the evolution of film and of women trying to be taken seriously in the workplace.Frances doesn t want to be an actress, but she wants to be a part of the movies, and she finds her niche as a scenarist during the era of silent films, when the flickers were considered a low form of entertainment and certainly not an art form She becomes great friends w This [...]

  • I am conflicted about The Girls in the Picture I am a huge fan of Mary Pickford and learned significantly about her in The Girls in the Picture, and I knew virtually nothing about Frances Marion so I enjoyed the details about her However, I felt the book was overly long and drawn out, and as I was reading I wished it had ended earlier in the women s lives In the Author s Note, Benjamin explains how much she glosses over in the later years and that left me with the same feeling again I I am confl [...]


  • 5 fantastical starsI am in awe and quite sleepless as well over this book In a word it was awesome Ms Benjamin has created for us a world that was early Hollywood It was a world where silent movies were becoming the rage and where woman were taking the reins or at least trying to in a society dominated and controlled by males We are introduced to two powerful women of the past, Mary Pickford and Frances Marion, who become great friends and travel the road to fame and stardom The year is 191 5 fa [...]
