Cast & Crew
Charles David Forrest
A very short introduction to the silent film comedians who made the world laugh at the Mack Sennett Studio. Such stars as Mabel Normand, Ford Sterling, Chester Conklin, Louise Fazenda, Harry Langdon, Slim Summerville, Mack Swain, Charlie Murray, and Polly Moran are glimpsed briefly. Two non-Sennett stars, Larry Semon and Lloyd Hamilton, are also featured. Several longer segments display the talents of Sennett's Bathing Beauties (with Gloria Swanson, Marie Prevost and Phyllis Haver), Billy Bevan; Roscoe Arbuckle; Ben Turpin with Jimmy Finlayson; and, of course, the Keystone Kops.
