Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks were "comparable to Brad and Angelina"???

Uhh...no. The truth is, there is NOBODY to compare them to today. Maybe Charles and Di right after the wedding back in 1981 comes somewhat close. Pickford and Fairbanks were without question the top two movie stars in the entire WORLD and when they went on a world tour they were completely mobbed wherever they went. They literally couldn't walk down the street because a huge crowd would gather.

As for the fate of Mary's and Buddy's Oscars, OF COURSE the Academy should get them back. Buddy's 3rd wife's kids shouldn't even enter into the equation. They want to do what...sell them on eBay??? Tacky, tacky, tacky. Shame on Buddy for not stipulating in his will what to do with the awards. Shame on her heirs for trying to make a buck off of Hollywood history.
