Douglas Fairbanks & Mary Pickford Wed

Hollywood stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks tied the knot on March 28, 1920. The powerhouse couple was a media sensation as they honeymooned across Europe. Upon their return to the states they moved into a home they called PickFair, a lavish mansion that became almost as famous as they were. The home was a wedding present to Pickford from Fairbanks. The 18-acre estate is said to have housed Beverly Hills’ first private home swimming pool.
