„The fortune of  a private view of The Sea Nymphs

Editorial content. „Mabel Normand in a Keystone De Luxe

      WHEN Mabel Normand, „Fatty“ Arbuckle,

Charles Chaplin, Mack Sennett and all the other stars

of the Keystone-Mutual companies unite to make

a two-reel comedy, it is a safe wager that it is going to be

something out of the ordinary. Keystone-Mutual

comedies themselves are utterly beyond equal in the film

business, but these two-reelers are what may be

called ultra-funny.

      Among the early subjects to be released in the special

two--month two-part Keystone-Mutual comedies

is The Sea Nymphs, in which all the stars are seen. Mack

Sennett directed the picture, which was made

at Catalina Island, where the waters of the Pacific are so clear

that one can see the pink and white sands fifty feet

below surface.“ (...)

      „We are old and blasé and wise in the ways

of the world. We have laughed at so

many things that it is difficult now to amuse us.

      But we laughed till our sides ached when we had the fortune

of  a private view of The Sea Nymphs.“

largely because he had ,kept us out of war.‘“

vorerst noch genannt.
