Last directoral job is silent job well done
19 February 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

Mabel Normand only directed a dozen or so films (shorts), but "Wished on Mabel" shows that there was something there.

The film itself is only 12 minutes long and is one of a series of Mabel shorts.

Viewing of this film was rather accidental as it was on a channel 45 program "Shorts Incorporated", which itself showed during 45's "Horror Incorporated" which was showing "Svengali" with John Berrymore and a preview of 1932's "White Zombie".

There does not appear to be any other easier way to view the film and a DVD of the Mabel series may at least be an interesting idea.

This Mabel film is a silent job well done because it is a simple story that is really funny concerning the history of a watch as it passes from owner, to thief, to bystander (finding on the ground), to the original owner's daughter, back to the thief trying to say to was his. The police come and more hilarity persues. Granted there are funnier things out there, but for a silent B/W short of only 12 minutes of length, it is time well spent.
