Summary

A recent contract signed by Mary Pickford made her the costliest star in all filmdom. The contract is with the First National Exhibitors' Circuit, the organization which recently raised Charlie Chaplin to what at that time was the crowning salary height. The contract will make Miss Pickford easily the highest paid film star in the world. Chaplin's 'Shoulder Arms' picture netted him £29,000.
