Product Description:

Lost for years, and finally unearthed in 1998 at the Norsk Filminstitutt, THE COOK finds Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton running a restaurant together. Arbuckle plays the cook of the title, Keaton a waiter. Next is A RECKLESS ROMEO, featuring Arbuckle playing a husband with a wandering eye. His attempt at a discreet liaison meet with hilarious consequences when Arbuckle and his paramour are discovered by BOTH of their spouses! Finally, as a special bonus, Harold Lloyd's hilarious short, NUMBER, PLEASE' is also included.

Description by Image Entertainment:

At the Bull Pup Cafe, Fatty Arbuckle is chef of all trades while Buster Keaton waits tables in own inimitable fashion. When a tough guy annoys the pretty cashier, Keaton comes to her defense with help from Luke the Dog, feisty canine defender of womanhood! One of the finest and funniest of these comedians' collaborations, "The Cook" was long considered one of cinema's lost holy grails until its discovery in 1998 among a cache of undentified nitrate prints at the Norsk Filminstitutt, followed by the discovery of even more footage in 2002 at the Nederlands Filmmuseum! This new edition combines the sources to approximate the original U.S. release of this comic milestone. Also included is "A Reckless Romeo," a legendary lost film also recovered. Arbuckle is at the height of his comedic talents as an adventurous young husband exploring greener pastures, but his attempts at indiscretion at the Palisades Amusement Park are filmed by a newsreel cameraman and shown at the local movie house with both philanderers' nearest and dearest in attendance! Arbuckle's "escape" is one of the most memorable endings of any cinematic comedy.
