A Keystone Every Monday -- March 25, 2014
Last year we marked the 100th anniversary of the Keystone company. Here is an ad for Keystone's first release, a split reel of "The Water Nymph" and "Cohen Collects a Debt," from the 28-September-1912 Moving Picture World. Most 1912 film ads did not name the performers, but this one talks about "Four Famous Comedians," Mack Sennett, Mabel Normand, Fred Mace and Ford Sterling. I have seen "The Water Nymph" and it is a good one. That's a nice photo of Mabel.
