The Art Deco Society Of Los Angeles Deems Hala Pickford "Unreliable"

We were recently contacted by a member of the Los Angeles Art Deco Society whom let us know that we were right on target with our assessment of  "Hala Pickford."  Our Art Deco insider tells us that "Hala" started showing up at meetings and became a member of the Society, presenting herself as a "mover-and-shaker."  The insider tells us that "Hala" volunteered for multiple projects only to bail on her commitment to each one at the last minute, claiming she "didn't have money for gas," thought it was "too far to drive" or that it was "too early in the morning."  Our insider tells us that "Hala" was completely unreliable and whenever she would volunteer for a project, they would smile and get someone else as well, knowing that she would be a no-show.

Our insider alleges that the society became aware of "Hala's" legal wranglings in mid-2010 and have decided that it is best to separate themselves as much as possible from Ms. "Pickford." Like many others, the Los Angeles Art Deco Society is afraid to confront "Hala" in any way for fear that she will use fraud and character assassination techniques to attempt to destroy the Societies credibility.  As is typical, more and more people are distancing themselves from "Hala," perceiving her to be mentally unstable, and because no one seems to want to be tied to her in any way.

We will continue to keep you posted as details emerge.

Hala Pickford Viciously Attacks Nita Naldi Biographers

While most of "Hala Pickford's" websites, blogs and fan-fictions sit dormant and unattended for weeks or even months at a time, don't believe for a second that Pickford isn't showing her ugly face somewhere behind-the-scenes.  Her latest attack viciously targets renowned Nita Naldi biographers and their website, (www.NitaNaldi.com) which has set the Gold-Standard in preserving the memory and accurate biography of the famed silent-film actress.

As per her usual Modus Operandi, "Hala Pickford" has made every attempt to capitalize on the massive success and attention of real artistic craftsmanship, claiming that it has somehow been "stolen" from her.  Upon the launch of the definitive Naldi site, "Pickford" began a libelous tirade on the Nitrateville Silent-Film forums accusing the Naldi biographers of "...ripping off" Pickford's work.  These tirades were almost immediately eradicated from the forum, and a stern message was privately sent to Pickford, warning her that this kind of behaviour would not be tolerated.

After the dismal failure of Pickford's attempts to slander the good names of the www.NitaNaldi.com biographers in respected Silent-Film forums, she upped the ante by publicly harassing them on her own blogs/websites as well as filing a fraudulent DMCA Complaint with the web-hosting company for NitaNaldi.com, the official Nita Naldi website, over the Christmas Holiday.  "Pickford" falsely accused the Nita Naldi biographers of intellectual property theft and demanded the immediate removal of the website.  Please note that less than 24 hours after receiving Pickford's phony complaint, the web-hosting company officially dismissed it.  Below is an excerpt from the laughable "complaint" Pickford filed:
"They stole this stuff in their biography (LINK REMOVED) filmography (LINK REMOVED) and then went to great lengths to put up a copyright claim: (LINK REMOVED) I was perturbed enough, but the copyright page sent me over the edge."
What makes Hala Pickford's false accusations against the Naldi biographers so interesting is that Pickford herself has long been publicly accused of Copyright Theft for her allegedly illegal reproduction of the book, Rudolph Valentino: A Wife's Memories of an Icon, originally written by Rudolph Valentino's second wife, Natacha Rambova.  In Pickford's complaint, she sources the aforementioned book as her "stolen stuff."  Keep in mind that this is the very book Pickford is accused of stealing herself and admits to reproducing.  Pickford has contended that the book is public domain, therefore not falling under copyright restrictions, but upon further investigation, it was discovered that the books' copyright is not public domain, but owned by Ann Wollen, an elderly cousin of Natacha Rambova and that the book is indeed under copyright protection.

It has not been lost to us, how quickly Pickford's asinine and laughable accusations were so quickly and officially dismissed based upon nothing but a cursory glance at both websites.  Less than 24 hours after receiving Pickford's complaint, she received a letter back with the following:  DENIED. 
www.NitaNaldi.com is a well-sourced tribute to Nita Naldi, beautifully written and thoughtfully laid out, whereas Hala Pickford's webpage on Naldi is littered with spelling and grammatical errors, clumsy layout and incomplete/inaccurate information.  It's very easy to see who's ripping off who.

Until next time,

Spotted! Hala Pickford - Is She Finally Paying Her $100,000 Court-Ordered Judgement To Tracy Terhune?

One of our Los Angeles readers sent us this picture of what is believed to be Hala Pickford withdrawing money from a local bank.  Is Hala cashing one of grammas "welfare" checks or could she really be withdrawing money to begin to pay off her court-ordered judgement of over $100,000 (One-Hundred Thousand Dollars) to Valentino authority, Tracy Terhune?  

Our insider tells us, "...though I couldn't be positive that it was (sic) Picford, she was dressed in similar fashion to Hala and had her jelly roll belly and cottage cheese thighs on full display."  We'll admit, it looks a LOT like "Hala" to us!  A special thanks to Shelly for this colourful picture, and keep 'em comin'!

Why All Authors Should Avoid 1921 PVG Publishing & Hala Pickford At Any Cost

We've gotten a lot of feedback from frustrated authors, particularly Silent-Film authors that have reached out to or been sought out by "Hala Pickford."  Some of these authors have expressed frustration that "Hala" at 1921 PVG Publishing is one of the only ones giving Silent Film books any sort of treatment and they feel that if they don't get published with her, there's no where else to go. (In our next post, we will tell you exactly how to easily go about getting your book published without using "Hala Pickford" or 1921 PVG Publishing.)

On the flip-token, we've been in contact with several authors whom signed publishing deals with 1921 PVG Publishing and "Hala Pickford."  They have used words such as "mortified," "disgusted," and "fraud" to describe their experiences, and of the people we've talked to, none have had anything positive to say about their experiences with "Hala" or 1921 PVG Publishing.  There are dozens of reasons to avoid 1921 PVG Publishing and "Hala Pickford" at all costs, but here is our Top 10  Reasons To Avoid 1921 PVG Publishing:

1.)  1921 PVG Publishing is not a legitimate business.  Upon searching the entire State of California for a business license for them or any of "Hala's" other business entities, no such record could be found.  We have personally alerted the State of California Attorney General to make them aware of such.

2.)  "Hala Pickford" does not exist.  This is one of her many aliases that have been used for fraudulent and often illegal activities.  Her full legal name is Katie Lynn Birchard and upon searching the State of Florida, State of California, State of Iowa and other places she's been known to inhabit, no record can be found of any legitimate business licenses registered to either Katie or any of her many aliases.

3.)  In 2010, Katie Lynn Birchard, A.K.A., "Hala Pickford" was sued in the State of California for $100,000 (One-Hundred Thousand Dollars) Plus All Applicable Court Costs for Defamation of Character for her blatant and willful Character Assassination attempts against renowned Rudolph Valentino author, Tracy Terhune.  Mr. Terhune was awarded the judgment in a slam-dunk lawsuit, in which presiding Judge William Stewart stated that the case against Birchard was backed by "clear and convincing evidence." Because "Hala" has no license to do business or valid corporation or L.L.C., any monies possibly owed to you as an author can be seized by the State of California to pay the judgment against her, first and foremost.  Also note that not even bankruptcy will eliminate this debt. It must be paid to go away.  Even if your book sells, you risk never seeing a penny of the profits owed to you.

4.)  "Hala Pickford" uses a "Print-On-Demand" service (www.LightningSource.com) for all of her 1921 PVG Publishing works, including her own.  She has set herself up as a "middle man," taking your hard earned money and because her English skills are that of a 6 year old, (she admits herself to dropping out of High School) her editing skills are null.  The most common complaint by readers is that the authors (other than herself) are decent, but the editing is terrible.

5.)  "Hala Pickford" has libeled and slandered nearly every major player in the Silent Film industry.  She has been boycotted by a vast list of people and using 1921 PVG Publishing to publish your book is "career suicide."  "Hala Pickford" is a social pariah whom no one in the Silent Film Industry takes seriously. Why risk having your book sit idle in a print-on-demand warehouse without any customer base, when you could do it yourself and have better luck?

6.)  1921 PVG Publishing has a running track record of missing deadlines, and pushing release dates back, sometimes months at a time.  Her "beauty" book has been pushed back for over a year, with a now unknown release date in 2011.  Two of the 1921 PVG Publishing authors have had books pushed back for over 3 months, with a supposed December, 2010 release date, however, as of today, no official date or sign of ordering info can be found.

7.)  1921 PVG Publishing is in dire financial times, recently having its' website shut down for a lack of web-hosting payment.  How are your customers going to feel when they go to order your book and see a non-payment error message on the publishing site that's supposed to represent you as an author?

8.)  "Hala Pickford" uses your work to further her own hateful agenda.  (See Google.com for further clarification.) When writing the official press release for author Rachel A. Schildgen, "Hala" included references to her own legal troubles and scandals, eliminating and professional connotations, making Ms. Schidgen look as unprofessional as "Pickford."  After spending months or even years writing and researching your book, how would you feel to see scandal included in the official press release from your own publisher?

9.)  "Hala Pickford" and her 1921 PVG Publishing projects are regularly boycotted and removed from circulation and events. The Los Angeles Visionaries Association removed her in 2010 and asked her to cease all contact and to refrain from attending any L.A.V.A. meetings or events. because of her "controversial and inappropriate" behavior.  In addition, "Pickford" allegedly assaulted a prominent Silent-Film attendee this summer; an altercation in which the police were brought in, resulting in a  subsequent restraining order being issued against "Pickford."  "Hala" was ordered to cease any and all contact with the victim, as well as to cease any public mention of the woman, either directly or indirectly, but has violated the order many times since.  Is this the kind of woman you want to rely on to move your career forward?

10.)  The 1921 PVG Publishing website is nothing more than a glorified blog template behind a website URL.  The header looks like it was designed by a blind man, and "Hala" regularly uses words like "Masterpieces," "You people..." and "Kooky" on the site.  She consistantly references herself and her works for authority, and as the least respected and unwanted member of the silent-film community, we can assure you that connecting your name with hers will cause you nothing but headaches.

In our next post, we will outline in detail, how to eliminate shoddy publishers and middle men like "Hala Pickford" and 1921 PVG Publishing, and put you in contact with the people/organizations that can really help move your career forward in a positive direction.

Until then,

A "Love Letter" To Con Artist & Fraudster, "Hala Pickford"

The authors at the Boycott "Hala Pickford" blog have posted a well-written, to-the-point "Love Letter" to Ms. "Hala Pickford."

 Please see the excerpt below and click on the above link for the entire piece.
"You are an evil, manipulating, nasty and prejudiced person who has attempted--but FAILED--to poison the reputations of so many people: Zachary Jaydon, Donna Hill, Tracy Terhune, David Bret, Stella, Jeanne Bret, Marianne Faithfull, The Malignant Narcissism Lady, Dusty Springfield, Marlene Dietrich, Gracie Fields and far too many others to mention.

The difference between ALL of us and you, however, is that WE have all triumphed in our many endeavours, primarily because we are ALL decent, well-respected people--whereas you will never be regarded as anything other than an international pariah and a FAILURE, both as a professional and as a human being. You may attack us as often as you wish, and with whatever identity you so choose. Nothing will alter the fact that WE are somebody, while you will never progress beyond the station of nonentity...

...May you live this way until you are very, very old and have had the opportunity to experience was unhappiness is really like. And then and ONLY then may your soul be dispatched to hell and your worthless carcass be committed to an unmarked grave."

Ladies and Gentleman.  After MONTHS of delays, we are starting to wonder if this book is EVER going to see the printers ink.  In 2009, we were promised that if we pre-ordered this MASTERPIECE shite, we would get an instructional DVD as an added bonus, giving us a visual how-to.  The most "amazeballs" part of this, is that the video would star Ms. "Hala Pickford" herself!  Even though the book was due to release on April 3rd, 2010 the powers that be at 1921 PVG Publishing have yet to resolve the book delay nearly 8 months later.  Today, however is your lucky day! We have obtained several of the fantastic photos that will be featured in the book that will teach you how to look like a Vamp Tramp, Sheba Clown or Flapper Lunatic! (Someone get this superstar creature some Crest Whitening Strips, STAT!)

These EXCLUSIVE photos come from the following 2 chapters:

Feast your eyes on these babies, and by feast your eyes, we mean, try not to projectile vomit all over your computer screen. It's really hard to clean up. Don't forget to Pre-Order!  If you can't wait, be sure to contact 1921 PVG Publishing at the number at the top of this blog. You're sure to reach "Hala" herself.  That is, if she's out of bed to answer the line!

I AM Ms. "Hala Pickford."


Honey, your nail polish looks like Stevie Wonder applied it.

This is my "Oh" face.

Could we please get a "How-To" Hold Up Saggy Knockers" DVD as well?

Smile for the camera! No, "Hala" You can't EAT the lipstick!

If this is what women in the early 1900's looked like, no wonder Rudy was gay.

Is this supposed to be the Tragic ending?

Evelyn Zumaya: “Hala Pickford Is Physically & Mentally Ill...

Valentino “Kooky” and former friend and confidant of Ms “Hala Pickford” has been spreading the news around the Silent Film Community that “Hala” is indeed “Physically & Mentally Ill.” (Oh, really?)

Evelyn has been telling anyone whom will listen about her frustrations with “Hala,” telling our insider that she became increasingly needy, calling her constantly for rides to and from different places, as “Pickford” has no vehicle and could not afford to so much as pay for gas. “Hala” also asked Zumaya for loans of money, as well as other favours. Zumaya became increasingly aware, as time went on, that “Hala” was dragging Zumaya's own name into the mud as well as her own. Keep in mind that this is all coming from a woman whom let her own father pass away unattended, while she defended “Pickford” in one of her many court proceedings, recounting events she knew nothing about and using “Hala” to further her own hateful agenda. When she was finished using “Pickford” to further said agenda, Zumaya dumped her, refusing to speak to her and ignoring her incessant phone calls. We think Zumaya is just as self-serving and shady as “Pickford.” Sounds like “Two Birds Of A Feather” to us!
...Even the CRAZY call “Hala Pickford” crazy!

With Warm Regards,

“Hala Pickford” - “Trimmed Down”

No, no... Hala Pickford is still as large as ever. No, we aren't talking about her physical size or her ego. We're talking about her Blogs fraud, lies, hate, homophobia.

As part of his slam-dunk lawsuit, in which he was awarded $100,000.00 (One-Hundred Thousand Dollars) plus all applicable court costs, renowned Valentino Authority, & Board of Directors member for the Hollywood Heritage organization, Tracy Terhune, was also given a permanent order protecting himself from the hateful wrath of Ms. “Pickford,” including a court order demanding that she immediately eradicate all defamatory material directly or indirectly mentioning Mr. Terhune. After more than a month of  her refusal to obey the court order, Google Inc. and GoDaddy were forced to go into her blogs and websites and forcefully removed more than 50 posts, totaling almost 58,000 words. The aforementioned court order against Ms. “Pickford” also instructed her to post nothing further defaming Mr. Terhune. As was expected, she has also violated this portion of the order and has posted further hateful rants against Mr. Terhune, in addition to re-posting things previously removed by Google Inc.  Mr. Terhune's court order awarded him permanent and complete protection from this sociopath and her "colourful" comments.  Google Inc. is now in the midst of a large-scale investigation into whether or not to completely and permanently shut down all of the websites/blogs that Ms. "Pickford" operates.

We'll be sure to keep you posted.
