Motion Picture News, 07-May-1921

By 1921, most of Mack Sennett's biggest stars, Charlie Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Roscoe Arbuckle, were long gone, although Mabel returned later in the year to make features. He continued to produce short comedies, many, like "Made in the Kitchen," starring Billy Bevan and Louise Fazenda.

Sennett produced occasional features like Home Talent. It featured "...a cast of celebrated comedians including Ben Turpin, Charlie Murray, Phyllis Haver, James Finlayson, Kalla Pasha, Eddie Gribbon, Dot Farley, Harriet Hammond and Kathryn McGuire." And of course there were lots of bathing beauties.
