Audience Reviews for The Forgotten Films of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle

Fatty Arbuckle made a great many short film comedies and most people have never heard of him, yet alone seen any of his films. He was a great comedian with an amazing knack for physical comedy. His films are a delight and very funny.
