The Forgotten Films of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle
contains 32 classic silent and sound comedies directed by and starring master filmmaker Roscoe Arbuckle.
The "Prince of Whales" is also joined by some of the silver screen's most legendary stars including Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Harold Lloyd, Ford Sterling, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, child star Jackie Coogan, and some unjustly forgotten comic luminaries like Al St. John, Mack Swain, Edgar Kennedy, Charley Chase, Monty Banks, Lloyd Hamilton, Lupino Lane and, of course, Arbuckle's multi-talented canine companion Luke.
Restored and digitally remastered from original archival materials, or the only known surviving print, each film features completely restored titles, intertitles, and several films include previously lost or alternate footage. Silent titles feature newly created scores from Philip Carli, David Drazin, Ben Model, The Mont Alto Orchestra, The Paragon Ragtime Orchestra, Rodney Sauer and Donald Sosin.
The Forgotten Films of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle includes a special 36-page full-color collectors booklet with biographies, restoration notes, reviews and essays.
This 4 DVD set is a long overdue celebration of the life and work of funny man Roscoe Arbuckle.
