In 1900, a young Mack Sennett dressed as the back end of a horse.  Since he didn't want to do that forever, he decided to try something different.  Around the same time, a new phenomenon was sweeping the country -- movies!  The first movies were silent movies but people all over the country flocked to the theaters to see them.  Mack Sennett learned all he could about making movies and became a successful movie producer.  This is his story.  It is also the story of how movies were made long before video cameras and special effects.
 Non fiction. SUBJECTS:     Sennett, Mack, 1880-1960.
                        Motion picture producers and directors.
