Product Description:

This release features a series of short films from a reunited Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle and Buster Keaton, dating from 1917 through 1919. Each performer's comedic progress is uniquely documented here, the chronological order of the short films offering the viewer a tantalizing insight into how Keaton went from minor roles to becoming a full partner with Arbuckle. Lovingly restored from private collections and archives, this collection provides us with a valuable artefact of these legendary performers.

Description by Image Entertainment:

A rising star who rose from bit player to writer, director, and star of comedies for Mack Sennett's Keystone Film Company, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle recruited up-and-coming vaudeville comic Buster Keaton for a series of films from 1917 through 1919. Presented chronologically, these shorts demonstrate Keaton's evolution from bit player to full partner as both men honed their comedic skills. Following the 1921 scandal that was inflamed by a publicity-seeking prosecutor and the tabloid press, Arbuckle's films were withdrawn from circulation in America. The films in this collection were gathered from international archives and private collections, with new English intertitles and digitally mastered from 35mm, some directly from the nitrate originals. Shorts: The Butcher Boy, The Rough House, His Wedding Night, Oh Doctor!, Coney Island, Out West, The Bell Boy, Moonshine (fragment), Good Night, Nurse, Back Stage, The Hayseed, The Garage.
