"Hide and Seek" is a short comedy directed by Mack Sennett.  The film is included in our program to illustrate the contributions of our star Helen Holmes.

This is the second earliest surviving film with Helen Holmes that we have. She became the audacious star of "The Hazards of Helen" a year and a half later, acting as the heroine of numerous railroad adventures.
