Hala Pickford

For a lover of silent film, there is nothing silent about Hala Pickford!  After falling madly in love with such silent greats as Rudolph Valentino, Mary Pickford (a namesake) and Charlie Chaplin, Pickford began Forget the Talkies in 2008.  Since that time she has founded The Rudolph Valentino Society, written two books and started her own publishing company, 1921 PVG Publishing.

Not only a lover of film, Pickford has dedicated herself to saving and restoring The Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles.  Pickford is currently planning the launch of a new website, which will place a focus on such preservation efforts.
