[b][i][u][font=Arial Narrow]RAGGEDY ROSE[/font][/u][/i][/b]



[font=Arial Narrow]1st filmed - copyright: Oct. 26, 1926 [/font][font=Arial Narrow]- Hal Roach-Pathe - 3 reels - release date: Nov. 7, 1926[/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]dir. Richard Wallace in collaboration with Stan Laurel[/font][font=Arial Narrow], Photography by Floyd Jackman[/font][font=Arial Narrow] and Jack Roach, Edited [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]by Richard Currier, Titles by H. M. Walker [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]cast: Alta Allen, Max Davidson[/font][font=Arial Narrow], James Finlayson, Anita Garvin, Laura Lavarnie, Jerry Mandy, [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]Carl Miller,[/font][font=Arial Narrow]Mabel Normand[/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]Location: Roach Studio, Culver City, California[/font]

[font=Arial Narrow]Plot: Ragamuffin (Mabel) worked for a junk dealer (Max Davidson) but is fired. Tries to land in a hospital and [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]lands in home of rich hero (Carl Miller) whom she mistakes for a doctor. Mabel fights off a gold-digger (Anita [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]Garvin) and her mother (Laura Lavarnie) and at the end gets her man.[/font]



[font=Arial Narrow]?The first Roach[/font][font=Arial Narrow] picture I made was Raggedy Rose[/font][font=Arial Narrow], directed by Dick[/font][font=Arial Narrow] Wallace?. ? Mabel said. In some places it [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]was reported that the film was directed by F. Richard Jones which is not the case. Many of the gags were [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]recycled from earlier comedy shorts. The character of [i]Raggedy Rose[/i] is one who ?gets everything second [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]hand even the sunshine? ? a real embodiment of the classic ?Secondhand Rose?. [/font]



[font=Arial Narrow]This comedy was heavily promoted as Mabel?s comeback. The promotion campaign even included the theme [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]as sheet music. In [i]Raggedy Rose[/i], Max Davidson, plays a character which seen in today?s political correct age [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]is more then over the top. If seen within the context of 1926 Max & Mabel make a rather funny team. The [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]dream sequence is lovely as is Mabel. The gag of the auto completely falling apart with a little impact ? used [/font]
[font=Arial Narrow]here for the first time by Roach. It was later use often by comics like Laurel and Hardy. [/font]



[font=Arial Narrow]Mabel is identified with the ?Keystone Pie? and now with the ?Roach Collapsing Car?.[/font]
