The first feature length film was produced here in 1912 by Jesse L. Lasky and Cecil B. DeMille. This 1901 barn turned studio was designated California State Historic Landmark No. 554 in 1956.

Highlighted in the exhibition will be items personally owned by Jack Oakie including his extensive photograph and autograph collection of his fellow actors and co-stars (especially those from Paramount). Friends represented in the gallery, are Charles “Buddy” Rogers, Clara Bow, Charlie Chaplin, Cary Grant and others. Buddy Rogers was one of Jack’s closest friends and often held parties at Pickfair. Pickfair artifacts will be on display including Buddy’s wedding certificate to Mary Pickford.
