After Mabel Normand, Louise Fazenda was Mack Sennett’s most successful comedienne. A spunky and versatile actress who came to Keystone in 1916, Fazenda quickly developed the character of the innocent country girl.

Fazenda could play glamorous roles as well, and during the twenties starred in several features. Marrying movie producer Hal Wallis near the end of the silent era, Louise Fazenda continued a successful career as a character actress right through the 1930’s, before retiring to the roles of housewife and charity fundraiser.
