Mack Made Movies
by Don Brown

Your great grandparents loved the Keystone Kops! They roared with laughter when Charlie Chaplin threw the first pie-in-the-face! Who did they have to thank for perfecting the new slapstick comedy to silent movies? Why, the great Mack Sennett, of course! And how did Mack get his start in show business? Would you believe he started out playing the back end of a horse in a stage skit in 1916? Fifteen years later, he was a movie producer with his own studio and thousands of employees! This interesting picture book pays tribute to the life of this creative genius!
