Looking for Mabel Normand

Madcap Mabel Normand


Recently, I purchased a 1916 February RED BOOK magazine with a rather lovely Earl Christy cover.  I was surprised that it had so much movie material including a dozen images of movie “stars”; a particularly sweet photo of Mabel Normand.  The images are all lovely but…some are of women I know besides Mabel there was Theda Bara, Mary Miles Minter, Blanche Sweet but others that I am not that familiar with: Kathryn Adams, Mary Boland, Aimee Dalmores, Jane Grey, Ormi Hawley, Sarah Louise Long, Emily Stevens, and Peggy Wood.
