Today marks two milestones for our site:  it's our sixth anniversary and we're publishing Doctor Macro scan number 1000!  And who better to showcase today than an actress who was there at the beginning of motion pictures, and who for many years was the most popular star in the world:  Mary Pickford.  Besides this shot from her film Kiki (1931), we have a bonus shot of her.

As of today, our site contains:

  • 1,001 Doctor Macro scans

  • 2,085 movie summaries

  • 10,600 Annex Scans, submitted by our site visitors

  • 1,790 songs, musical numbers, and radio programs

  • 1,104 actors and actresses

  • 10,300 movie posters
