    Description

    Oh, Mabel Behave (Triangle, 1922). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    This is a very historically significant one sheet in the annals of silent screen comedy. Mabel Normand and Mack Sennett were linked together romantically and of course, to the earliest history of screen comedy. Director Sennett met Normand while at Biograph Studios and embarked on a tumultuous affair with her. He later brought her to the newly founded Keystone Studios in 1912 and as a result she rose to the top of her profession as her comedic talent began to blossom. In 1918, her romance with Sennett ended and she left Keystone to join Sam Goldwyn Studios, never to return to the studio that made her famous. The film, directed by Sennett and Ford Sterling, for which this poster was produced was made earlier but not released until 1922. This gorgeous one sheet featuring the two lovers from a period in 1917 before their romance dissolved, is a charming stone litho one sheet which had minor edge chipping, a piece missing in the bottom border, and about .5" trimmed from the top and left borders, but thanks to expert professional restoration, it now looks as good as new. Very Good+ on Linen.
