Description by OLDIES.com:
Beautiful Mabel Normand was both a champion swimmer and a "Gibson Girl" when she arrived in Hollywood and found work with D.W. Griffith. She signed with Mack Sennett when he founded Keystone Studios, and finding her niche in comedy, became his biggest star. In her heyday she was idolized for her wealth, independence and outspokenness.
Gale Henry was said to be the prototype for Popeye's girlfriend, Olive Oyl. She formed her own Model Comedy Company and produced a successful series of films from 1918 on into the twenties. Turning to supporting roles with Charley Chase, the pair continued to turn out comedies into the sound era.
