mabel normand 1895-1930
i believe we have a winner. during her seventeen years as the reigning elf of the silents, mabel acted in 226 films. 226! even if some were shorts, anyone who has made a video knows how detailed the process can be. she wrote, directed and owned her own movie studio. it is amazing how much one can achieve in a short life.
