Presents the films of Fatty Arbuckle, the grown-up fat boy of American silent cinema, who dominated silent film comedy from the days of Keystone until tragic events in 1921 shattered his career, throwing his film triumphs into obscurity. Blacklisted by Hollywood, Arbuckle continued directing dozens of film comedies under the pseudonym "William Goodrich" for almost another decade.
