Movie Info

In Suds, America's Sweetheart Mary Pickford plays against type as a homely Cockney laundress with delusions of grandeur. Mary yearns for a Prince Charming to take her away from her rude surroundings. She throws herself at society swell Albert Austin, while delivery boy Harold Goodwin pines away for her unnoticed. Surprisingly, Pickford's dreams do not come true, and as the film ends she tearfully picks up the pieces of her life. Though it would remain one of Mary Pickford's favorite films, its doleful ending proved unpopular at the box-office. The film was based on 'Op o' Me Thumb, a one-act play by Frederick Fenn and Richard Pryce.

Critic Reviews for Suds

All Critics (2)

As a part of Mary Pickford's canon of work, Suds is a minor enjoyment, giving some weight to her comedic skills, while the rest of the movie creaks along.

Audience Reviews for Suds


A cute and humorous little romantic comedy. Women will sympathize with Pickford's character, wanting her dream man, but unable to do anything more than fantasize. The movie is pretty funny, but it could really use more laughs. Overall, it's just pretty good.
