Description :
Mabel (Mabel Normand) is a hot dog vendor who, like a shabby scoundrel (Chaplin), has to trick her way into entry at the racetrack. Chaplin wears his usual moustache and big boots but sports a light-colored derby and frock coat as a comic villain. Charlie pesters several women while Mabel has trouble peddling her hot dogs. Charlie swipes one of her hot dogs—and later her entire franchise—before the film ends with the two consoling each other at the end of a busy, if not profitable, day at the racetrack. A nominal effort, Mabel’s Busy Day was filmed on location at the Ascot Park Speedway in Los Angeles at a special exhibition race on May 17, 1914. The bystanders in certain scenes, gathered for the race, afford the viewer precious glimpses of how the general public reacted to Chaplin’s antics. Finished and shipped: May 30, 1914 Released: June 13, 1914 Scenario: Unknown Producer: Mack Sennett Director: Mack Sennett Length: One reel
