Though unjustly overlooked today, Mabel Normand was one of the most popular and gifted comedians of the silent era, an ebullient slapstick innovator who, as the first star at Mack Sennet’s legendary Keystone Studios, directed, acted with, and mentored fellow greats like Charlie Chaplin and Fatty Arbuckle.
