DEDICATION OF SENNETT STUDIO PLAQUE
On Thursday, February 26th, Councilman Mitch O'Farrell was present for the re-dedication of the original 1950s plaque made by Ralph Edwards’ program, "This is Your Life," for Mack Sennett, which was installed at the wrong address.
This re-dedication fulfills the original intent to have the marker placed on the last remaining structure from Mack Sennett's studio.
When you are out & about, please stop by and see this glorious plaque, which signifies the earliest area in Los Angeles where filmmakers had their production studios. Although the plaque is located in a gated area, the good folks at Public Storage told us they will let you in to see it upon request. Just buzz their office at the front entrance.
Our thanks to the 13th District Councilman O'Farrell and his team for their support in fulfilling this project. We also want to thank everyone who participated in our online fundraising campaign. We couldn't have done it without you!
Note - The currently named "Mack Sennett Studio" at Fountain and Effie streets in East Hollywod/Silverlake was built by Mack Sennett for Mabel Normand when Sennett was part of the Triangle/Fine Arts Company. The studio was also later used by William S. Hart.
