The Marvelous Mabel Normand: Leading Lady of Film Comedy

Available to book from 9 November.

Mabel’s Blunder (1914)

Mabel’s Blunder (1914)

Mabel Normand was the irrepressible spirit of early Hollywood, an extraordinary performer from the anarchic days of Mack Sennett’s Keystone company to the more polished comedies of the 1920s.

As an actor, producer and director she worked with the best: in this selection of short films we see her with Mack Sennett, Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle and a young Oliver Hardy — but make no mistake, Normand’s the star here.

Films included in the package:

Mabel’s Dramatic Career (1913)
Mabel’s Blunder (1914)
His Trysting Place (1914)
Should Men Walk Home? (1927)

Available to book with pre-recorded score from 9 November. The Meg Morley Trio are available to accompany performances of this package from 24 November.
