Today is Mary’s birthday. It is also the third anniversary of the launching of this website, dedicated to sharing the memory of beautiful Mary Kornman.

My thanks and wishes of peace, happiness, and good health go out to all of those who have shared on these message boards and in other ways.

I especially thank you Mildred, Randy, Bob, and Cole for sharing your photos! Wow! We’re up to 453 photos; that's over 100 more than we had last year!

I’ve contacted TCM to have a “Mary Kornman” day! Come on Turner Classics! After all, Mary is the incarnation of class!

Thank you Mary, for putting sunshine in so many hearts and a smile on so many faces!

Happy Birthday Mary!

Dear Barbara,
Thank you for sharing your experiences with Mary, Ralph and Mildred. You are truly very lucky to know them. If you are ever interested in sharing any photos you might have for either gallery I would leave you contact information on this board. Thank you again for sharing your memories.

Having been a friend of Ralp and Mary and Fury and also (still) a friend of Ricki/Mildred, I am happy to sign this book as a fan of all of them and all they achieved. I spent a lot of time at the ranch with all the horses, rode Fury (not his true name) and many of the other horses. Spent a lot of time with Mildred/Ricki and enjoyed her fashion career and her photography work. An amazing, wonderful family--lucky to know them.

Today is Mary’s birthday. It is also the second anniversary of the launching of this website, dedicated to sharing the memory of this wonderful actress and person, Mary Kornman.

My introduction to the silent “Our Gang” shorts came late in my life. Upon seeing my first one, only two and a half years ago, I was most struck by the charm of this young girl, which transcended the need for sound. It perplexed me as to how one’s persona could radiate through a silent format. When I set out to do research on her, I was able to find out very little about this young lady except that she had a younger sister, Mildred, and continued making movies until her mid 20’s. I started to look for her later movies wherever I could find them, along with pictures and any information about her that was still available. I had thought what a shame it was that no one had created a site in honor of one of, if not, the first child actress in moving pictures. So with no experience in creating a website I decided to take on the project myself but not without the blessing of Mildred Kornman, which then came.

Now two years later, this site has grown from having a gallery of under 20 photos to having over 350 and still growing as we speak. For this I would like to thank Randy Jones, fellow “Kornmanite”, for finding, sometimes “under a rock”, and donating photos of Mary in just about every type of scenario. I also thank Bob Demoss, a collector of “Our Gang” memorabilia, for donating from his collection. Finally, I thank Mildred Kornman for her blessing upon my creating this site with the wealth of information and memories that she has shared with me; not only of the beautiful actress but of her loving sister, Mary Kornman. What a wonder gift to the world Mary was and still is.

Thank you Mary, for putting sunshine in so many hearts and a smile on so many faces!

Happy Birthday Mary!

I really liked Mary Kornman and Thelma Todd both, but there were some striking differences between them. To me, although I consider Thelma to have been both beautiful and talented, there appeared to have been a worldliness about her, or maybe a world-weariness. It seems that she was tough when she had to be. You get the feeling that she always knew exactly what she was doing and where she was going. In contrast, Mary projected an innocence and a vulnerability that would make a good man want to protect and take care of her. This quality Mary had added much to her being so appealing.

Watching Mary and Mickey Daniels together is great fun. Mary could have reduced even the strongest and manly types to no more than blushing and stammering schoolboys!! She was so demure, feminine and sweet, what man would not have melted when she spoke to him!!

Glad you liked the site, Erin! Yes indeed, my favorite three; Mary, Bach and The Beatles! Or is that six? Thanks for visiting. Mr. F.

This Is A Great Site. I Am Also One Of Your Seventh Grade Students, So We Have Learned Much About Mary In Class., But The Website Is Greater Than Hearing Just Words.
Thanks Again -Erin

Thanks Woodey! Your choice of words is perfect! It is not difficult to create a "beautiful" site when the subject is beautiful in every way, both inside and out! JF

Thanks! Kudos to Randy and Bob for making the gallery supersized!
In a nutshell I was really surprised to find very little about Mary when I searched her name on the internet one day. Being virtually the first child movie actress along with having an extensive movie career as a woman I thought much information would be out there, but no. So I decided to take on the project myself.

Great site, though I was to young for Mary's version of Our gang...I did watch some of the later versions of it. How did you come to be involved John?
