MOVIE MAID MUSCLE
Abroad, Miss Normand is known as
"Muriel Fortesque" and she dum
founds British audiences by the vigor
with which she plays her parts in the
most rough-and-tumble comedies.
All the "nuts" of English playhouses
are devoted to her.
Here she is just plain "Mabel," the
pretty, little, happy-go-lucky movie
girl. ' She is always original, "full of
pep" and an all-round athlete. She
is joyously at home on horseback
and swims as though water were her
The first time she appeared in mov
ing pictures was with the "Vita
graph" company, and later with the
"Biograph." Now she plays leads op
posite Max Sennett, and they make
an excellent pair. "Mr. Sennett and
I played in "I Should -Worry'' some
tims ago,", she says, "and since then
I can't worry." Miss Normand is a
brunette, with ery dark hair and
snappy eyes. She radiates health
and the love of living, and I think
she is the one girl in the world who
never had the "blues."
