Mabel Normand in West is Making New "Sis Hopkins" -- December 19, 2018

Moving Picture World, 28-December-1918
Last month I decided that I haven't been posting enough items about Mabel Normand. Mabel and Mack Sennett co-produced Mickey, which became an enormous hit when it was released in 1918. This twenty-four sheet poster was "displayed on the curtain of Proctor's Fifth Avenue Theatre, New York."

Mabel was under contract to Goldwyn Pictures.  I think Samuel Goldwyn was still using the name Samuel Goldfish. "Goldwyn" was a combination of the names of Samuel Goldfish and his partner, Archie Selwyn.  Most of Mabel's Goldwyn films are lost.
