Blu-ray. Fanchon the Cricket, based on an "adult fairy tale" by George Sand, 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 siblings Jack Pickford and Lottie Pickford are featured alongside 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 are paired with a new, original score by Julian Ducatenzeiler and Andy Gladbach, comissioned by the Mary Pickford Foundation.
