EYE ON LA looks into the “Mabel Normand Studio” in Silverlake district of Los Angeles on Bates. Yes, they call it “The Mack Sennett Studio”, now we know that the Mack Sennett Studio was on the other side of the hill in Edendale near Echo Park. That said, the people at ABC show us the basement of Mabel’s Studio, which was also used by William S. Hart. The pictures are wonderful even if there was some mislabeled.
Also ABC gives us a peek into the Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax, once upon a time a photo of Mabel hung on the wall but it fell down and has not been put back up.
LOS ANGELES (KABC) --
VINTAGE FILMS & STARS
Some of L.A.'s most exciting vintage treasures have to do with our Hollywood history! See what we found in the basement of the historic Mack Sennett Studios, and where you can see early Hollywood films at the Cinefamily Theatre's Silent Movies. Do not miss our Tina Malave's visit with the one and only Dr. Demento!
Mack Sennett Studios
Built nearly 100 years ago by Hollywood pioneer Mack Sennett for his fiancée, starlet Mabel Normand, the legendary studio in Silver Lake once again bears the name of the man who built it. Today, the state of the art studios are in high demand for commercials and music videos, like Robin Thicke and Pharrell's chart-topping "Blurred Lines" video.
