    Description

    Three Original Mabel Normand Photos, One with Charles Chaplin. This packet offers a wonderful trio of Mabel portraits. Number one shows a smiling, full-length Mabel in Mickey (1918), the film that, thanks to her wildly energetic performance and amazing stunts (including jumping into water nude!), fully established her as a comedy superstar. The second is a marvelous publicity picture, capturing Mabel in a funny hat (and white high heels!), straddling a wall as she puts up a poster for "Mabel Normand in The Slim Princess". The third is a great candid shot of Mabel with Charlie Chaplin, at a time when they were King and Queen of movie comedy. The Mickey portrait has a matte finish, and the other two are glossy. Photographer Albert J. Kopec's stamp is on the verso of the shot of Mabel and Chaplin. There are small chips out of the upper and lower right border of the shot for The Slim Princess, and a crease though the middle of the shot, not detracting from the overall impact. These are wonderful mementoes of Mabel Normand at the apex of her stardom.
