Joseph Nebus reblogged this on Joseph Nebus's Sense Of Humor and commented:

I've been meaning to bring this to people's attention but keep finding other things taking up my time instead. Robert S Birchard of the ``Comedy Fast and Furious'' blog found an obelisk erected by Ralph Edwards's You Bet Your Life to commemorate the Mack Sennett Keystone Studios. The plaque commemorates the ``birthplace of motion picture comedy'', which may be a touch overstating things but is still fair enough since if you think of a silent (American, at least) comedy film you're probably thinking of something touched by Sennett. But the obelisk and the plaque were endangered, and, there's more to the story, and I think you'll enjoy learning it.
