Riddle Me This Productions has begun production on “Madcap Mabel: Hollywood’s First Party Girl”.

Playing the lead is Greek Actress Penelope Lagos, who not only resembles Mabel Normand, but whose acting ability literally embodies the role.

Miss Lagos will be the first to portray Mabel in a lead role and the film is already set to be screened at several venues early next year. The following trailer for it has already been well received by industry:
