Martha The "Brick Layer" Speaks! (Hala Pickford, "¿Historian?")

Today, we have a special guest with us to help further our research on "Hala Pickford." There has been much confusion about her "meticulous research" that has been brought to our attention, and so, with the help of Martha The "Brick-Layer," we'd like to clarify some points for our readers.

--On October 19, 2009, Hala Pickford advised her many four followers on “How to Write a Silent Film Biography,” which you can read here, although we don’t recommend it. She begins this lesson by announcing:
"I hate self proclaimed titles. A lot of people like to dub themselves ‘experts’ or ‘authorities’ or ‘historians.’ I like to think those are titles one can only earn, but that doesn’t stop people from taking them. I could hear a million old gasp-y shocked breaths if I declared myself any of the above...I may be no Kevin Brownlow [ed. she got that one right] but I research everything meticulously. The Cinecon crowd might not like it but I probably deserve some such title or the other."
We would like to point out that although Miss Pickford “hates self proclaimed titles,” it took her only to the paragraphs' end to reward herself with one.

Miss Pickford usually does not hesitate to insult and belittle the work of others, even as she trumpets her own "mad skilz" as a historical researcher; but friends, we now have a golden opportunity to compare some of Hala Pickford’s “meticulous” research with the work done by some of the “old gasp-y” crowd. Let us contrast a few paragraphs from two online biographies of silent film star Nita Naldi: that by Hala Pickford  here, and than by some “old gaspers” on the website “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp."  After we finish this interesting exercise in critical thinking, you can decide for yourself exactly which title Miss "Pickford" deserves.

Hala Pickford tells us that “Nita was born Nonna Dooley in March 1895.” Hala doesn’t give us much in the way of sourcing for her biography, but she does drop this tidbit: she derives her information from the 1900 census, which the “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp” biographers have kindly posted here. Censuses are notoriously unreliable about such information, a fact Miss Pickford was warned about (repeatedly), but which she chose to ignore. The accurate Nita Naldi website states that Nita’s birth name was Mary Dooley and that her birth date was November 13, 1894. As evidence they supply Nita’s birth certificate, along with the birth and death certificates of Nita’s siblings, here.
Meticulous? You decide.

Hala tells us that Nita’s brother was named “Frank Naldi” and that he joined Nita in creating a “song and dance act.” This interesting data point was apparently derived from the information on the 1900 and 1910 censuses, combined with the name “Daniel Francis” carved on the family gravestone (Click For Source), and a September 1924 newspaper interview with a Frank Naldi who claimed to be Nita’s brother. The accurate Nita Naldi website, however, states that Nita’s brother was named Daniel Aloysius Dooley, that he joined the Army, married, had a child, studied law, and worked in a bank. Their sources? Censuses, his draft registration, marriage and death records, and discussions with Nita’s family. His obituary (which can be read here) and his grandchildren support Silent Vamp biographers' version of events, rather than Hala Pickford’s.

Meticulous? You decide.

So who was this “Frank Naldi?” We queried the “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp” owners and received this response: “Not Nita’s brother.

So who was this “Daniel Francis?” The Nita Naldi website has provided us with information from the cemetery interment record:
“Note: although the stone above the Cronin family plot is carved with five names, there are fifteen people, representing three generations and three marriage-related families (Dunphy, Cronin, and Dooley), buried in this plot. Most are infants, the children of Daniel and Margaret Dunphy Cronin (Nita’s maternal grandparents), and Nita’s infant siblings, the children of Patrick and Julia Cronin Dooley [ed. Nita’s parents]. The names carved on the stone are Nita, her mother Julia (Cronin) Dooley, Mary and Bridget Dunphy (the siblings of John and Sr. Mary Nonna Dunphy, and Margaret Dunphy Cronin), and Daniel Francis Cronin, infant son of Daniel and Margaret Dunphy Cronin.
In other words, “Daniel Francis” was Nita’s uncle... or he would have been had he lived.

Meticulous? You decide.

Pickford also seems confused about the names carved on Nita’s gravestone, stating:
“...only her [Nita’s] mother would be buried under the name ‘Dooley,’ everyone else was buried under the name ‘Dunphy,’ likely an influence from Mary Nonna, or the fact that this was their grandmother’s maiden name.”
Pickford does not provide any analysis for this odd statement, but as the sourcing from the accurate Nita Naldi website illuminates, the other people listed on the Calvary Cemetery gravestone were called “Dunphy” because their name was indeed Dunphy.

Meticulous? You decide.

Pickford discusses Nita’s mother.
“To make matters worse, Naldi’s mother soon took ill. Julia spent some of 1910 with her mother and children, but eventually was enumerated in the St Lawrence Hospital that year.”
Miss Pickford has not provided a citation for this statement and we do not find this information anywhere on the “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp” website. We queried the “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp” biographers, and received this response: 
"We presume this information was derived from an entry on the 1910 census, 1910; Census Place: Ogdensburg Ward 4, Saint Lawrence, New York; Roll: T624_1075; Page:10A; Enumeration District: 160; Image: 510. We do not include this on our site because we do not think everyone named Julia Dooley who lived in the State of New York was Nita’s mother.
The St. Lawrence Hospital in Ogdensburg, New York was a state-run facility in upstate New York for the care of the insane. If Nita’s mother was at such a facility she was more than likely legally committed through a court action, which means there might well be supporting documentation available. However, since we are not making the claim that the person on this census record is Nita’s mother, it is not our responsibility to look for it."
No, that would be Miss Pickford’s responsibility.

Meticulous? You decide.

Later on, when discussing Nita’s marriage to J. Searle Barclay, Jr., Hala advises us first that the two were married for only a short time and then split; a few paragraphs later she contradicts herself, saying
"The pair had been together for eleven years when they separated...Naldi returned to New York, without her husband, in late 1931, under the name Nita Naldi Barclay."
There is no citation for this statement, but the “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp” website has provided us with this Ship’s Manifest for a port arrival on October 22, 1931, here. Nita Naldi Barclay is indeed listed on this manifest, at #13. However, right above Nita’s name, at #12, is Nita’s husband, Searle Barclay--and both give their addresses as the Plaza Hotel. We will go out on a limb and suggest that Nita and her husband did not get separate rooms. We queried the Silent Vamp biographers as to when, exactly, Naldi and her husband split up. Their response? “They didn’t.

Meticulous? You decide.

Perhaps our favorite howler occurs when Pickford discusses Nita’s father.
“Patrick appears to still have been alive in 1910, being enumerated in a boarding house not far from where his family lived. Of the boarders, there were two German widowers and a 28 year old Irish immigrant named Martha who was also said to be widowed. She had immigrated in 1906, leaving the possibility that Naldi’s parents had ended their marriage due to some sort of affair.”
Setting aside the incoherent sentence structure, this is a flimsy and downright dangerous speculation to suck from a census enumeration, which is, as usual, Pickford’s sole source. The interpretation becomes even more bizarre when we actually look at the census record itself, which the accurate Naldi website has kindly posted here.  The “28 year old Irish immigrant named Martha” (number 56 on the enumeration sheet) is, in fact, a 28 year old male bricklayer named Martin. While this would certainly put an interesting spin on the breakup of Nita’s family, it is—sadly—beyond the scope of this inquiry.

Meticulous? You decide.

Finally, in the introductory paragraph of her Nita Naldi “biography,” Miss Pickford makes this surprising claim:
"Nitanaldi.com kindly stole research from this article without credit. Not surprising considering its run by Valentino Kookies."
We wonder. What “research” did the Nita Naldi website steal from Miss Pickford? (And why on earth would they want to?) Miss Pickford cannot even read the few records she has bestirred herself to find, and those few items she has found are all non-copyrightable public record—in other words, available for anyone to read, interpret, and cite. Hala Pickford’s “mad skilz” as a researcher and historian consist of locating a few census images and taking a quick pass through digitized newspapers. She then takes what little she finds, misinterprets what she doesn’t misread, studiously avoids critical thinking, and sews it all together into a crazy quilt of errors, confusion, blather, and braggadocio, not a single word of which any reader fill find duplicated on “Nita Naldi, Silent Vamp.”

To sum it up: there are poodles out there who better historians than Hala Pickford.

You decide.

Thanks to Martha, The "Brick-Layer" for all of your insight. I think we know what title we'd assign Ms. "Pickford," and it certainly would not be the title of "Historian."

10 Things You May Not Know About Hala Pickford & 1921 PVG Publishing

1.  "Hala Pickford" does NOT exist. "Hala Pickford" is one of the many aliases that Katie Lynn Birchard uses to spread hate, libel & slander, homophobia, & lies via the internet and in print.  Some of her other, more notable aliases include, "Hala Kitty," "Hala Kuromi," & "Kaja Mundy."
2.  1921 PVG Publishing is NOT a legitimate business.  1921 PVG Publishing does not operate under any legitimate business license, L.L.C. or corporation in the State of California according to a recent, exhaustive records search.  In addition, no Tax ID information or any other information can be found indicating that 1921 PVG Publishing is anything more than a tacky website and a figment of Katie Lynn Birchard's warped imagination.

3.  On September 17th, 2010, Katie Lynn Birchard lost a $100,000 (One-Hundred Thousand Dollar) lawsuit, in which she was deemed to have publicly libeled Rudolph Valentino Authority, Tracy Terhune. The judge ruled in favor of Terhune after "...clear and convincing evidence" was presented in the slam-dunk case against Birchard.

4.  1921 PVG Publishing has pushed back the release date of nearly 80% of its' titles more than 9 months.  Three of 1921 PVG Publishing's 2010 titles have been on hold for more than six months. One of Birchard's own titles has been promised for the better part of a year with only a TBA in 2011 release date currently listed, even after accepting pre-order payments for the aforementioned title.

5. Katie Lynn Birchard was accused of physical battery after allegedly assaulting a prominent silent-film community member at a film screening in Hollywood. A restraining order was subsequently granted to protect the victim from Birchard.

6. 1921 PVG Publishing and some of Birchard's other websites/blogs recently had their websites shut down for a lack of web-hosting services payments.

7.  Katie Lynn Birchard is a High-School dropout with no college education. This is known because of her own self-admission and also assumed because of her lack of grammatical and spelling skills in the English language.

8.  Including the 1921 PVG Publishing website, Katie Lynn Birchard owns/operates in excess of a dozen websites and blogs, many of which are created for the sole purpose of destroying the character of many prominent and well-respected people in the entertainment industry.  Many of these people "intimidate" Birchard because of their long-standing roles in specific areas of interest that interest her.  Her character assassination techniques are in an attempt to level the playing field to give her a leg up in these areas.

9.  Katie Lynn Birchard is a self-professed mega-star.  Over the past several years, she has boasted to having a plethora of professions including:  Singer ("Hala Kitty" / "Hala Kuromi"), Songwriter ("Hala Kitty"), Publisher, (1921 PVG Publishing "Owner") Author ("Hala Pickford"), Comedienne ("Hala Pickford"), Record Label Owner (O-Diamond Records), Screenwriter (?), Actress (?), Record Producer ("Hala Kitty"), Silent-Film Authority ("Hala Pickford").

10.  Katie Lynn Birchard has not held down a legitimate job in years.  The last real job in which she paid taxes and went to work was at a local mall in the Orlando, Florida area.  She lives off a small pittance of money that her grandmother, Edith sends to her each month. Her only other source of income is provided to her when she can fool someone into believing that one of her books are worth reading or that her Rudolph Valentino Society is somehow worth joining. Please join us in boycotting all of the works involving Katie Lynn Birchard and 1921 PVG Publishing.  Let's send a clear message that there is no room for her kind of business in the Silent Film Community.

Vintage "Hala Kitty" Track Discovered! (Hala Pickford)

By now, you're probably being serenaded tortured by the sweet sounds of "Hala Kitty" from the player at the bottom of our page.  "Hala Pickford" has always been a phenomenal  terrible, wanna-be performer. Here, again the proof is in the "pudding." Her Global flop, "I Kissed Ben (Bledsoe)" and others were so terrible, that when she submitted them for consideration to participate in the 2007 Florida Music Festival, the selection committee actually wanted her to perform; all as a joke, of course.  In 2007, the Orlando Sentinel ran this piece, publicly humiliating the wanna-be popstress and sending her into a public fit on several of her blogs. We thought we'd let you all read and listen for yourself. You be the judge. Please leave your opinions in the comments!


The EXPOSE "Hala Pickford" Team

"As a part of this year’s selection committee for the Florida Music Festival, I recently perused hundreds of submissions from hopeful artists. Amid all the night soil that’s to be expected from any cattle call, I happened upon something special. Now, everyone knows about Orlando’s platinum lineage of pop stars. It’s a source of pride … blink, blink … really. But I’m on to the next great white hope. Her name? Hala Kitty. I’ve experienced the glory but all the words in my well-guarded dictionary wouldn’t be able to capture it. Just go... listen for yourself... and succumb. From production values to sheer vocal display, this is just pure awesomeness. Though I voted for her, consider this my formal plea to the festival’s organizers to put her in. Guys, I’m thinkin’ entertainment gold..."

The Last Laugh Is On Hala Pickford; Duped Into Believing Fake Rudolph Valentino Signature Is Real

Recently, we've come across a plethora of alarming details indicating fraud in regards to Hala Pickford's sham of a film festival/society, dedicated to her favorite obsession, Rudolph Valentino.  She's obviously misrepresented the festival from the very beginning, including the date it is supposedly happening/has happened which varies depending on which website/blog you stumble upon.   No one has ever seen a public accounting of where the society dues are spent.  According to Pickford, society membership has many benefits, including discounts on her trashy Valentino trinkets, availability of advance festival tickets for a festival that has had more date changes than you can imagine and other useless garbage.

Given the fact that Hala has trashed on every other Rudolph Valentino authority, including Tracy Terhune and many other prominent Valentino authors, claiming they have done terrible research, you'd  want to believe that she herself would have researched her own affairs in better detail.  Terhune has written a fabulous book on Valentino, also owning one of the most extensive and sought after, museum-quality Valentino memorabilia collections in the world, but Pickford, at the ripe old age of 23, would have you believe that everyone else is "loony" and she is the all-knowing when it comes to the subject.

Below is the original Rudolph Valentino photo that Hala "borrowed" and the FAKE Valentino Autograph that she copied from a Google search & gave to her artist, Kate, whom came up with this terrible machination of his image.  This artist rendering looks more like a drag-queen advertisement than a logo for the famed actor. The shading is terrible and the form is garbage, but Pickford "...screamed with glee" when she saw the finished product, claiming that "there could not be a more perfect logo for Rudy."  She probably should have screamed in horror.  Keep in mind that Pickford had no idea that she had even taken a forged signature.  She probably will not realize that her own "research" is in error unless she stumbles upon this report herself.

Hala Pickford "...screamed with glee" when she saw the forged signature and terrible artist rendering of Rudolph Valentino.

Below are several true specimens of Rudolph Valentino's authentic signature.  You will notice many differences, including the fact that the "V" in Valentino is rounded and never pointed.  You will also notice that Valentino never closes the "a" in Valentino and that the "R" in Rudolph is much different as well.  We had all  of these signatures, including the fake examined by one of the top Autograph Clearinghouses in the USA and they pointed out the same things, also noting that the "pen pressure" appeared to be different in the fake as well.  All of these discrepancies in the fake signature explain why it's been for sale for over 2 years without a buyer.  It's not fooling anyone but Hala Pickford.  The proof is in the pudding and once again she's  clearly mistaken shit for pudding.  Don't take our word for it. We'll let you be the judge.

Hala Pickford Publicly Admits To Being A Hooker?

Now, we aren't quite sure what the significance is, as we've always suspected it was the truth, but for some reason or another, Hala Pickford has decided to upload her very own theme song to The Rudolph Valentino Society page.  That's right folks, The song, "Hooker" has been added as a permanent part of her very professional erratic website.

Now, you might be saying to yourself, "...but that song is very inappropriate, and uses the "fuck" word in nearly every stanza."  You might also be asking what her being a hooker has to do with Rudolph Valentino. or a prestigious society "focused" on his life.  We aren't sure how to explain it either, especially since this is the very same page in which she begs for money and membership dues on.  I know I'd surely never plunk down my last dime to support a website that focuses on these kinds of things!  When push comes to shove, it's clearly all about "Hala Pickford" and not the facade she puts up in pathetic attempts to hide that.

For your reading enjoyment, we have decided to post the lyrics to the song here:

[Chorus 2x]
And you ain't nothin' but a hooker
Sellin' your fuckin' soul

Back up! They want you, I swear
You got no worries, you got no cares
All you got is motherfuckers who will jock you
Yeah, you got money in your pocket
And you shoot up the ground like a rocket
You move so fast, lord you can't stop it
There you are in the club swingin'
And I'm just standin' there, standin' there laughin'
All the things people have you believin'
I feel sorry for your ass is out of season
Maybe you should think of cuttin' down drinkin'
Cause you look like a fat rat sinkin'
I coulda helped you, but you had to act out
You don't have a fuckin' clue what I'm about

[Chorus 2x]
And you ain't nothin' but a hooker
Sellin' your fuckin' soul

I saw it comin' through the line like a full back
You're a crack slack, a fuckin' rap back (yeah)
Don't react, you're not fact
Don't give a fuck, yes, like that
What you gonna do now that you ain't got nothin'
Look around honey, you been frontin'
Everybody knows that you're a fraud! (And I'm making records!)
My salutations, no hesitations
No reservation, just cancellation
And if I blow it then I blow it
Cause I'm a poet and I know it

[Chorus 2x]
And you ain't nothin' but a hooker
Sellin' your fuckin' soul

[Repeat until fade]
You wanna try me
Don't you know-

Until next time,

SPOTTED! - Hala Pickford At Local Gay/Lesbian Diner In Hollywood

Hala Pickford was recently spotted by one of our readers at "Kitchen 24," a local Gay/Lesbian diner in Hollywood.  As we always enjoy, she discreetly snapped a couple of photos for us.  The most interesting thing wasn't the fact that Hala was at a gay/lesbian establishment, or that she was stuffing her face with a double order of Fajitas, but that she was allegedly there with her "gal pal"  and the two allegedly spent half of dinner making out and sharing desert.  According to our insider, 

"...Hala and her gal pal were really getting friendly over a double order of fajitas.  Initially I thought her pal was a male, but upon further inspection, I noticed a large set of breasts. Hala is definitely the more effeminate one of the two.  ...they each had a large helping of banana cream pie and left hand-in-hand..."

Save Room For Desert!

I must applaud our reader, as the mere thought of watching Hala Pickford in any sort of sexual situation makes us want to vomit up last weeks' lunch, let alone trying to stomach todays'.

Thanks to everyone for all the Hala happenings. Keep 'em comin'!

Why Hala Pickford's "The Rudolph Valentino Film Festival" Is A Scam

For the better part of 18 months, we have all been hearing about Hala's latest & greatest "masterpiece," "The Rudolph Valentino Film Festival."  The festival, which was purported to be happening in May, 2010 flopped, like the rest of Hala Pickford's many projects.  The festival and its' haphazard and ever-changing dates and details have been spread around the world wide web like a bad case of herpes.  According to one website, geared towards film makers, Hala's festival has already happened.  We are avoiding posting the link to the site because, contrary to the many lies she told in court, she's posted her home address and telephone number there.

What's interesting about the info on that site, however, is that on top of being advertised as a month-long event, she is charging a $15.00 "submission fee" for each filmmaker that would like to have his/her film considered for use at the festival.  The problem with this is that the festival isn't happening, so to ask people to pay a fee for an event that isn't happening would be fraud.  The following was taken from the "official" website for Ms. Pickford's festival.  Keep in mind that this info has been the same for over 6 months.
"Hello everyone!  You may have noticed the site is temporarily down.  That's because we are currently working on confirming the venues and our new date, which will take place in Autumn 2010 here in Hollywood.

Never fear Rudy Fest is still happening!  We were offered a wonderful last minute venue for May but due to some setbacks the decision was made to postpone the festival so we will have a little more time to gather funding and submissions.

Check back soon for submissions call, our new date, and our new venue!  If you want to be alerted automatically, make sure to join our mailing list.

We'll be back ;)."
Now, we aren't rocket scientists, but Autumn, 2010 was over 4 months ago.  Where did all of the submission fees for this event go?  We are assuming that they went into the same bank account that all of the pre-order money for all the 1921 PVG Publishing books that never come out went.  We'd imagine that all of that money went into the same bank account that the Rudolph Valentino Society dues went into.   More than likely the same bank account tied to the store where Pickford "hocks her wares" of cheap ripoff Valentino mugs, key chains and the like.  We are, of course, talking about the bank account of Katie Lynn Birchard.  "Hala Pickford's" legal name.

According to the aforementioned website, here are the fine details of the festival.  Our notes are in RED.

Our (Hala Pickford's) mission is to promote the films of Rudolph Valentino, Silent Films, and new filmmakers of all types

Founded by The Rudolph Valentino Society (Hala Pickford) the Rudolph Valentino Film Festival Scam was created with 3 missions in mind:

*To promote the films of Rudolph Valentino  Hala Pickford.

*To promote silent films Hala Pickford to new audiences

*To promote new and promising filmmakers who wish to make the best films possible  Hala Pickford & 1921 PVG Publishing.

Our month long (MONTH LONG?) event will be held at a Hollywood, CA theatre which will be announced in August 2010.  (You're a little late, sweetheart.) A grand spectacle our festival will feature many lectures, signings, shorts, contests, and belly dancers! (Hala Pickford has a LOT of belly.) It will be a film festival to remember! (Like ALL Natural Disasters!)

For more information please see:


Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) ; Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) ; Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) ; Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) ; Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) ; Hala Pickford (Festival Registrar) (Has anyone noticed that this seems to be a ONE woman show?)

Though we have a focus on promoting the art of silent film we are NOT A SILENT FILM ONLY festival. ALL TYPES OF FILM ARE WELCOME! Below is what we are looking for:

Short Films:

We are looking for several short films, under 30 minutes in length.

Feature Indie Films:

We are looking for 2 independent films of feature length (1-2 hours long) to showcase.

Any filmmaker may submit, be the a youtuber or Academy Award winning artist.  (We are very sure that Academy Award winning film makers are just lined up at your door, Hala!) All ages are welcome and young filmmakers are especially encouraged to submit. We will have both standard projection and digital projection. Our focus is on good solid films, the best of the best no matter where they come from. Valentino believed in finding art in film, and we are glad to promote his legacy by encouraging it. 

We hope you got as much of a laugh from this as we all have. If you see any other notable places on the web where this festival is featured, please write in so that we may alert the proper authorities.

Until next time,
