After saving a little girl from drowning, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle receives an offer to join the police force, or rather, the Keystone Cops. This Mack Sennett-produced quickie, however, focuses primarily on Arbuckle's antics, and justifiably so -- even though he'd been at the Keystone Studios for only a few months, he'd already become a star in his own right. The big man comes up with some masterful pratfalls. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
Fatty and Minnie He-Haw
Mabel, Fatty and the Law
Mabel Normand and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle are a married couple in this Keystone quickie. After a fight caused by his flirtation with the maid, Fatty and Mabel go for a walk through the park (actually Echo Park in Los Angeles, a frequent location for the Keystone troupe. The park still exists today). In typically convoluted Keystone fashion, they get mixed up with another couple, the cops get involved when they believe that the "No Spooning" law has been violated, and both Mabel and the other woman's husband wind up in the clink. An amusing, if extremely dated, statement on morality in the 'teens. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
Fatty's Magic Pants
Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle directed himself in this Keystone short. In it, he wants to take a girl (Arbuckle's real-life wife, Minta Durfee) to a fancy dress ball, but he doesn't have the right outfit. His rival does have the suit, however, so in spite of the fact that the guy is a much smaller size, Fatty steals it. In retaliation, the rival sneaks into the ball and, without Fatty's knowledge, rips open the pants seam...the rest can be guessed. One of the funniest of Arbuckle's Keystone flicks. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
