KEENE, N.H. Carpenter Peter Massie has come across some interesting finds over the years — antique bottles, old newspapers stuffed in walls. But his biggest discovery is the only known copy of a 1911 Mary Pickford movie that marked a turning point in the silent film star’s career.

The Library of Congress is funding a project to restore the film, titled “Their First Misunderstanding,” and it will be shown this month at Keene State College, where a retired professor has overseen the restoration.
