MICKEY

 

Mickey,” that mysteriously delayed feature comedy in the making of which Mabel Normand was employed for nearly a years, has passed into new hands again and remains unreleased, unless it has been turned loose since this was written.  When Mack Sennett withdrew from Triangle, “Mickey” was thrown in with the effects that were turned over by Sennett.  It was said at the time that he had expanded the sum $250,000 in making the production.  Then H. O. Davis, of Triangle, took “Mickey” back to New York and found a purchaser in an independent distributor whose activities have been confined largely to Great Britain and Europe.
