Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle Birthday

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Happy Birthday to Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle on what would be his 121st birthday. I know there are some that get upset at referring to the comedian as “Fatty” and believe me, I can understand why he did not want to be called as such, but that is what most people know him as.






As most people know, Arbuckle’s career was cut short when he was placed on trial for the rape and death of actress, Virginia Rappe. A friend and film researcher Joan Myers has been working on a book project that will shed light on some different and unknown aspects of the comedians trial. To learn more about it, go to the Alternative Film Guide and read the Q & A by Andre Soares with Joan.
