Mack Sennett as Writer
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Griffith gave Sennett the opportunity to write his own material. Sennett gave Chaplin the opportunity to write his own material. The succession of talent is akin to the succession of Bishops in the Christian church.
