Mabel, Mabel - Adorable Mabel!
22 March 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Cute, fast-paced romantic comedy starring Mabel Normand as a small town girl who wants to be an actress and has two local rivals for her affections - Aaron Applejohn (Vernon Dent), not exactly a heartthrob, but well-to-do (her dad's choice for a son-in-law, of course) and Dave (Ralph Graves), her handsome longtime sweetheart who she loves. Mabel decides to mail in her photo to a Hollywood movie contest, but the "Widow Brown" decides to help things along and hopefully get Mabel out of town (and get Dave for herself) by switching the photo in the envelope to one of a beautiful young woman (hmmm - I think Mabel is beautiful too, so why the switch?!). Anyway, in the meantime dad decides to MAKE her marry Applejohn (and is actually ready to take his belt to her!) when the telegram from Hollywood arrives saying she won the contest - just in the nick of time! When she arrives and the movie studio sees that she is not the same woman, she is put to work in the costume department. Soon her parents, and Dave too, are all in Hollywood with her - but nothing works out the way she expects.

Well, this film is well done and full of fun - Mabel is a charmer in this, as usual, I just love her expressive face! There is a lively, fast chase at one point, where Mabel is trying to get to the train station before she has to get married, with dad and Applejohn in hot pursuit - all well done on real rural (looked like suburban twenties L.A.) streets. I also enjoyed the scene where Mabel leads a lion through the studio, under the belief it is actually "Teddy the dog" in a lion suit - quite amusing. The DVD version of this I saw featured a very decent looking print and excellent piano score by composer Ben Model that really suited the film well. A very entertaining film.
