Biography

Mack (Sinnott) Sennett is Notable.

Son of John Sinnott and Catherine Foy

Does not appear that he ever married nor had children

Called the "King of Comedy", Mack Sennett was one of the pioneers in comedic delivery on the silver screen. He created "Kid Comedies", which was the forerunner of the "Our Gang" films. He also was behind the "bathing beauties" used in a number of comedic shorts which became quite popular in the early 1900's. He was also one of the people behind the Keystone Kops shows, and might be said to have perfected the slapstick routines used for comedic wild car chases and pie in the face routines.
