THE EXTRA GIRL
Not available on Home Video
Mabel Normand was the most accomplished comedienne of the silent screen, and this charming film is the best evidence we have of her work in features. A mixture of tender romance and knockabout comedy, Mabel plays a small town girl lured to Hollywood by dreams of stardom who gets no further than a job in the wardrobe. The studio setting gives ample opportunity for her talents to shine, including a classic scene when a lion is let loose.
