Killruddery House and Gardens, Bray, Co. Wicklow (www.killruddery.com) will host an evening celebrating the life and work of Mary Pickford one of early Hollywood’s most influential figures with a special showing of the iconic film My Best Girl accompanied by a live musical performance on Thursday, 10th May 2012. The Orangery in Killruddery House will provide an exceptional background to this very special evening of film.

The evening will begin with an introductory talk from eminent film historian and film-maker Kevin Brownlow on the life and work of Mary Pickford. My Best Girl is an enchanting romantic comedy telling the tale of Maggie Johnson (Pickford) who falls in love with Joe Grant (Buddy Rogers) who she meets while working as a stock room girl in a 5 cent store.

The film will be accompanied by a live musical performance from accomplished silent film pianist Stephen Horne . Some all time favourite cinema treats with an added Killruddery twist will be served along with a complimentary glass of wine.
