Looking for Mabel Normand

Madcap Mabel Normand

 

In the December 1932 Photoplay Magazine is an article about the trio that became the core of what we think of as the masters of Mack Sennett’s Keystone kingdom.  But “Their Real Roles were Tragedy” Arbuckle – Chaplin – Normand.  Back in June 1920, The Bioscope said of this “trio” – they’re great! – it was dozen years before the Photoplay article and half-dozen year after they romped together on the Keystone lot.

…they’ve never been equaled…

They are world famous – world beloved – the greatest laugh bringers ever know.
