Overview

Coquette is Mary Pickford's first talkie, based on the play by George Abbott and Ann Preston Bridgers. The story was already made famous on the stage by star Helen Hayes. At almost 40 years old and lacking her signature curls, Pickford plays the young Southern belle Norma Besant, who is courting three different men: Stanley (Matt Moore), Robert (George S. Irving), and bad boy Michael Jeffrey (Johnny Mack Brown). She naturally falls for Michael and flees with him to a cottage. Her angry father, Dr. John Besant (John M. St. Polis), follows them with a gun, and violence ensues. Superstar Pickford won Best Actress at the 1930 Academy awards.

Coquette probably stands the test of time because it is the first Mary Pickford talkie. However, her talkies did not take off with audiences. This one runs quickly and doesn't define the characters enough to become engaged with the dramatic scenes that follow. Mary's character is immature and somewhat annoying. Still, one can identify with some of her behavior like asking a sibling for a favor and over protective parents.
