I really don't remember. It was hanging around in the Silent Film Stuff folder on my computer, and has been there for awhile. It is a nice portrait, though. I liked him in The Ocean Waif (which has the best score ever, courtesy of Jon Mirsalis.)

Mabel with a walnut elephant at the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.( I don't know the story behind this; I swiped it from Marilyn Slater's Mabel Facebook page.)

This is a strange one. I wonder if this still exists.

I looked for information on that, but couldn't learn much. There is still one apparently in existence, but I think it's a modern reproduction. I can't imagine the original would have aged too well. It was apparently made in the 1890's as a display of California's agricultural bounty and walnut-growing prowess. (But why an elephant :?: )

Here is another from Marilyn's FB page. I'm trying to figure out what Mabel is doing. Smoking?

idk!! That's weird! I thought maybe she was holding a bottle, but it's very hard to tell.

Thanks for trying to look up the statue. I'm not sure why it would be an elephant.... do elephants eat walnuts? I tried to Google but didn't come up with much.
