A Perfect 36 is a 1918 American silent comedy film directed by Charles Giblyn, written by Tex Charwate, and starring Mabel Normand and Rod La Rocque.[1] The plot involves Normand's clothes being stolen in a mixup while she was swimming, necessitating her spending most of the film running around naked trying to straighten everything out.



Like many American films of the time, A Perfect 36 was subject to restrictions and cuts by city and state film censorship boards. For example, the Chicago Board of Censors required a cut, in Reel 4, of four closeups of the young woman on the diving board.[2]
