Did You Know?

Because of a misidentified still from Molly O' (1921) credited to this film on page 162 of Daniel Blum's "Pictorial History of the Silent Screen", Jack Mulhall is sometimes erroneously listed among the cast members. He does not appear in this film.See more »

Mabel Strikes Gold, 23 July 2013
Author: wes-connors from Earth

Country tomboy Mabel Normand (as Mickey) is sent from rustic Feather River, California to live on her snooty aunt's Long Island, New York estate. The free-spirited Ms. Normand enjoys cavorting with animals - and skinny-dipping for cameramen with very long lenses. Nobody is sure if Normand owns a gold mine or is penniless, so she is treated as both an heir and a servant (at different times). Normand attracts debonair millionaire Wheeler Oakman (as Herbert Thornhill) and overly amorous Lew Cody (as Reggie Drake). After numerous hi-jinks, "Mickey" ends up with a winning man and (we hope) lives happily ever after...

That Mabel Normand did not survive the ravages of fame was a great loss...

Normand was an excellent actress and comedienne. Unfortunately, she did not leave behind enough material to fully appreciate her worth. This production reportedly took two years to complete, with Normand's personal problems contributing to the delays. Fortunately, her "partying" lifestyle does not adversely affect Normand's performance as "Mickey". This was one of Normand's best feature-length films. The plot is rather ordinary, but the star handles each situation well. Herein, she is most memorable portraying a carefree servant girl, sliding down the banister and ingeniously sweeping her aunt's dusty mansion floors.
