Sennett Girls: 1919

"Mack Sennett girls in costume" circa 1919. Sennett, an early producer of silent films, was known as the King of Comedy for his slapstick reels. View full size. National Photo Company Collection.

 

Hey, yeah. You're right...

They're even in the same costumes!

If it's a publicity shot from the same movie (Why Beaches Are Popular), then some (or all?) of these other ladies might be:

• Phyllis Haver
• Myrtle Lind
• Harriet Hammond
• Marie Prevost
• Louise Fazenda

Looks like we seen 2 of these girls before

The girl in the middle on the bottom row and the girl on the right of the top row can be seen in another shot on Shorpy.

Observations

The one in the lower left-hand corner apparently was having a little trouble holding still. The girl in the upper left-hand corner is the only one looking directly into the camera. The girls in the bottom row all have ambiguous gazes. I also find it interesting that there apparently was a time when black wasn't the standard color of tires.
