Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle would have celebrated his birthday today (1887-1933). In remembrance here is a 1918 comedy short, Good Night, Nurse, which co-stars Buster Keaton. Not only is this great fun, but it’s historic – Buster Keaton smiles on camera!
From 1918, written and directed by Roscoe Arbuckle, here’s Good Night, Nurse.
Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle…
Some great gags here! So sad to think about how his career ended…
Love Roscoe! I hope HBO sees their project thought – it would be great to see his story told with truth & compassion: http://screenrant.com/hbo-day-laughter-stopped-fatty-arbuckle-eric-stonestreet-yman-129082/
I learned a lot about Roscoe doing a research about Mabel Normand. I’ll certainly check this short, seeing buster smiling must be priceless.
Oh, my scenes of the crime post is already up!
