Large format - I think I see Mary Pickford in there

As I have written here before, every once in a while I will post pictures which for some reason NEED to be shown at full size because there is SOOOOO much detail you need to see it all. Here we have a photo from the Mary Pickford film, "A Romance of the Redwoods" (1917) directed by Cecil B. Demille. Thanks to everyone who responded and helped me with the title.

Oooo I know this without being 100% sure Im right...but Im close to it Im sure. Whatever it is there is a still of it in Kevin Brownlow's Pickford book if anyone would like to confirm (sadly I do not have it on me).

I BELIEVE its A Romance of the Redwoods which was a DeMille film. Would explain the emphasis on the trees.

Hmmmm, good call, I'll have to see if this pans out. I was looking for another Pickford picture that had the same still code on it but came up empty handed.

I checked both Mary Pickford Rediscovered and Hollywood but did not find that picture. However, my first instinct was Romance of the Redwoods too.

I have found a photo of Romance of the Redwoods with the same code of your, into the book The De Mille legacy, edited in 1991 by Le Giornate del Cinema Muto, page 50.
