Mack & Mabel

Mack & Mabel

Mack and Mabel deals with the complex relationship between Max Sennett, a temperamental, workaholic film director and Mabel Normand, a waitress who became one of his biggest stars. In a series of flashbacks, Sennett recalls the time he discovered Mabel back in 1911, her rise to stardom, their love affair, when she leaves him to work for the “serious” director, W.D. Taylor, and finally, her tragic death from a heroine overdose. In the end, Senett creates his own happy ending plotting a scene in which he and Mabel marry.
