Madcap Mabel Normand

2018 Mabel's Log

Diving Girl (Biograph 1911)

Posted on June 7, 2015 at 5:50 PM

In August 1911, Mack Sennett took Mabel Normand, (and maybe Donald Crisp, Guy Hedlund, Joe Graybill, and Grace Henderson) for a swim at Huntington, Long Island, NY.  Although it is dated August, it may have been done over the 4th of July holiday. Mabel dives and swims and laughs in 500 feet of film Biograph documented her skill in the water. Wm Thomas Sherman sent this to me to share, the print is at MoMA, you can watch it on YouTube, no music background but frankly I kind of like it without music, but I don’t think it shows Fred Mace and Del Henderson but I could be wrong take a look and let me know what you think…DIVING GIRL (Biograph 1911)

I have seen this film a long time ago, I really love Mabel Normand and studied a lot about her work. This film really deserves attention as it does not look like everyone else. I analyzed some details and wrote an essay about it on https://writingcheap.com/college-essay-writing.html
