Mack Sennett

Born: 17 January 1880, Richmond, Qu├ębec, Canada
Died: 5 November 1960, Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA

Mack Sennett was one of the most successful individuals of the silent and early sound era. He began his career in show business on the stage in New York as a chorus boy, but quickly became involved with the new medium of film and found himself being directed by D. W. Griffith and working with big name actresses such as Mabel Normand and Mary Pickford. By 1910, Sennett had directed his first film. Soon after he formed the Keystone Film Company and began producing, directing and starring in his own movies. Sennett went on to produce over 1000 films and directed over 300.
