44. The Flapper and The Bad Boy | Olive Thomas and Jack Pickford

Continuing our journey into Old Hollywood, Alicia unpacks the wild romance of the “It Couple” of Hollywood in the late 1910s, Olive Thomas and Jack Pickford. Both certainly have their archetypes, and lived them well.

We follow Olive from her humble beginnings into her trajectory to fame, and Jack’s esteemed pedigree as the brother of America’s Sweetheart. Finally, we explore their marriage and, of course, the mysterious death of our fair heroine.
