A Keystone Every Monday -- October 17, 2012

This year we mark the 100th anniversary of the Keystone company.  Here is an ad for Keystone's first release, a split reel of "The Water Nymph" and "Cohen Collects a Debt," from the 28-September-1912 Moving Picture World.  Most 1912 film ads did not name the performers, but this one talks about "Four Famous Comedians," Mack Sennett, Mabel Normand, Fred Mace and Ford Sterling. That's a nice photo of Mabel. 

The Giants lost the second game to the Cardinals, after a 3.5 hour rain delay.
