The bathing beauties were pin-up girls for the soldiers of the First World War. Sennett was a Canadian-born American director and actor and was known as an innovator of slapstick comedy in film. These are of silent film actress Marie Provost. She was discovered by Mack Sennett who signed her to contract and made her one of his “Bathing Beauties” in the late 1910s.
