‘America’s Sweetheart’ Mary Pickford, arguably one of the most prominent female performers in Hollywood during her era stars in Swallows.  The film is an atmospheric thriller that mixes sentiment, adventure and horror and centres around a group of orphans, of which Pickford plays the eldest, held in bondage by a villainous farmer. The film’s climax is thrilling and involves an alligator infested swamp and quick sand!
