Looking for Mabel Normand

Madcap Mabel Normand

 

October 1926



 

This is one of those wonderful pictures of a day at the beach when the sand was littered with ‘stars’. They are dressed for a party not for a dip in the surf.  What I didn’t realize that this photo was done at Connie Talmadge’s place until I read the description in a fan magazine, last night.  There are much better copies of the photo knocking around but the list of who was smiling at the camera is pretty complete here. (No Mabel Normand but so many here were her friends.)
