What: THE LITTLE AMERICAN
Dir. Cecil B. DeMille. 1917, approx. 80 mins. With Mary Pickford, Jack Holt, Raymond Hatton, Hobart Bosworth, Walter Long.
“America’s sweetheart” is torpedoed by a U-boat, becomes a spy for the Allies in France, and is sentenced to a firing squad. The film was released three months before American entry in the war and no doubt contributed to hatred of the “Huns.”
