Trivia

Several comics of the silent era did variations on the "mannequin leg" gag in which someone mistakes a mannequin leg for a real woman's leg. Mabel Normand put a unique twist on the gag for her version by deliberately pretending the fake legs were real. See more »

The Queen of Comedy rules
2 December 2002 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Petite, graceful Mabel Normand stars as gawky, clumsy Maymee Ladd, a beaten down shopgirl who is told that she is possessed by the spirit of a Spanish temptress ("That will be five dollars, please") and goes in search of love and adventure. A star vehicle, pure and simple, it showcases Mabel's talents quite beautifully and has a number of good laughs based on her character's awkwardness.
