Their First Misunderstanding (IMP)

January 9, 2011

Their First Misunderstanding was Mary Pickford‘s first film during her short-lived contract with Carl Laemelle‘s production studio, the Independent Motion Picture Company, known as “IMP.” In 1910 the rising star followed Florence Lawrence in leaving Biograph for this new production company, which lost no time in harnessing her star power for the film’s publicity.
