1 SHIPP, CAMERON Carbon Typed Manuscript Signed by Mack Sennett of an Article for the Reader's Digest Magazine “The Best Advice I Ever Had”
New York 1959 
5 pages. Ghostwritten by the author, Cameron Shipp and signed “OK Mack Sennett” in pencil on the first page. The article is about Sennett's early dreaming, and his introduction to the stage with the help of “an earnest young lawyer” who wrote a letter to stage actress Marie Dressler: “Dear Miss Dressler: This boy wants to go on the stage. Yours truly, Calvin Coolidge.” Dressler urged him to go to New York, and there after many disappointments, he met D.W. Griffith who taught him how to direct. The article discusses his early triumphs and mentions Mabel Normand, Gloria Swanson, Frank Capra, Carole Lombard, and how Sennett gave another man a chance to dream his own dreams, Charles Chaplin. Sennett was known as “The King of Comedy” and created the Keystone Cops. The article was published in Reader's Digest March 7, 1959. Fine.
