Their First Misunderstanding (IMP)
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.
Thomas H. Ince directed this film, which was shot in the newly opened IMP studio in Cuba. In it, Mary Pickford starred opposite her first husband, Owen Moore. According to Eileen Bowser, Pickford and Moore were honeymooning in Cuba at the time.
