In 1946, Mary Pickford and her husband Charles “Buddy” Rogers released a film based on the popular newspaper comic strip Little Iodine through their B-film production company, Comet Productions. A failed attempt at establishing a popular film series, the production of Little Iodine will nonetheless serve as a useful case study in this talk examining the process of Hollywood serial filmmaking and the American cinema’s intersection with disparate media forms in the 1930s and 1940s.
