Editorial Reviews

Where Mickey (Mabel Normand) goes, trouble follows, from a backwoods mining shack to an opulent New York estate - even a high-stakes horse race where she takes the place of one of the jockeys!

The orphaned Mickey, a pants-wearing child of nature, gets into constant mischief in and around the California wilderness shack where she is being raised by her father's mining partner. Unhappily she is shipped off to a Great Neck, Long Island aunt who is going to 'learn her to be a lady.' In reality her fancy aunt is broke, and has her avaricious eye on Mickey's inherited gold mine. When the aunt learns that the mine went bust, Mickey becomes a modern Cinderella, forced to work as a servant in the dark, unfriendly home. Mickey is rescued from servitude by handsome Joe Meadows, and a big surprise awaits for her.

Mickey is one of the first motion pictures to feature an original theme song that became a top selling record. The soundtrack of this DVD contains both versions of the hit single.

Silent screen superstar Normand also co-produced Mickey, which set box offices afire in 1918. Watch for future funnymen Tom Kennedy and Edgar Kennedy in bit parts. For a finale, a slimy rejected beau (Lew Cody), chases Mickey to a high rooftop with just one thing on his mind. Eight years later, Cody caught Normand in real life. She became his wife in 1926.

BONUS: 'Mabel and Fatty Viewing the World's Fair', 1915.

Mabel Normand had already made her mark as an accomplished comedienne in Keystone and Mack Sennett productions when she ventured forth with her own production company in 1916. "Mickey" was the first and only film produced by that company, and it was delayed due to various problems until its release in 1918, but it was well worth the wait. Unlike the earlier Keystone comedies however, "Mickey" is basically a serious but light-hearted story, and as Mickey, Mabel is thoroughly entertaining as a tomboy growing up in a rough environment at the 'Tomboy Mine' where everything she does ends in trouble. It doesn't get any better when she is sent to live with her aunt in New York, but through romance and a bit of adventure she turns into a lady - though not before some twists and turns with action and some intrigue. There is quite a lot packed into just over an hour, and while there's nothing really outstanding or special about "Mickey", it is still a pleasure to watch, mainly due to Mabel's charisma and acting skill. The picture quality is very good, although at times there are a few jumps where some frames are missing. A little worse for wear is the short bonus comedy "He Did and He Didn't", in which Mabel stars with Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle who plays Mabel's jealous husband. When Mabel's old school sweetheart comes for a visit, the three of them experience a wild and crazy night, complete with robbers, shooting and murder - or so it seems. Finally, a slide show with beautiful photographs of Mabel and other memorabilia set to the original 1918 theme song for "Mickey" is a lovely treat, taking you back in time to when the film was first released. Although this is only a mid-priced DVD with budget packaging, the good quality of the feature film and the two bonuses make it rate fairly well.

Format: DVD
Mabel Normand, now largely unknown, was the greatest comedienne of silent movies. Discovered by Mack Sennett of the Keystone studio, she starred in dozens of Sennett's comedy shorts, often partnered with Fatty Arbuckle.
Mickey is a feature-length comedy produced in 1918 by Normand herself, who (as Sennett's great romance) was finally given her own studio as a reward for her years of hard, underpaid work. It tells a classic story of a poor orphan girl who rises to riches helping her prospector uncle in his search for gold.
The film is about an hour in length, replete with pratfalls, mad chases and close escapes from hair-raising dangers. Movies didn't use stunt people in those days -- Normand does her own, as do the rest of the cast.
The story line doesn't hang neatly together as later movies do. Parts of the film were lost and the surviving scenes are only loosely stitched together.
It doesn't really matter. The action sequences are what count, and Normand's undeniable star quality.
The DVD also features one of Sennett's better comedy shorts (He Did and He Didn't, 1918) starring Normand and Arbuckle. The careers of both were shattered by scandal in the early '20s, Arbuckle by his innocent association with an alleged rape (he was quickly found not guilty in the last of three cooked-up trials) and Normand by her friendship with a prominent director who was mysteriously murdered 15 minutes after her last visit with him.
Mickey is a must-see for anyone interested in silent film, and it's hugely entertaining.

Mickey is a silent film. Mabel Normand was like a female Charlie Chaplain, so very expressive in her comedic bits. The story is full of chases and high-energy romps. A classic film.

this DVD is unwatchable. i ordered it through the library at the institution where i teach. a sticker was affixed on the cover warning that this was a recorded DVD and may not play on all DVD equipment. nice disclaimer. the DVD cover is cheaply printed. the distributor, unknown video (sic!) should sell their product in the streets, rather than to educators. truly disgraceful.
