Description by

For a brief period during the heyday of silent comedy, The Three Fatties (a.k.a. A Ton of Fun) stood tall - and round - as among the most beloved slapstick funnymen on the silver screen. Frank "Fatty" Alexander, Hilliard "Fat" Karr and "Kewpie" Ross each weighed over 300 pounds, and together this tubby trio wrought hilarious havoc in a series of comedy shorts produced between 1925 and 1928 by FBO (the Film Booking Office), which was owned by Joseph P. Kennedy.

This exclusive collection of nine vintage shorts showcases this chubby, threesome at their outrageous, trouble-making best, including their very first short, "Tailoring" (which includes an appearance by Pete the Pup from the Our Gang series), and their second-to-last screen outing, Standing Pat. Ross retired from films following their final short, while Alexander and Karr worked in a few shorts afterward.

Collection includes:

  • Backfire (1926)
  • Heavy Love (1926)
  • Old Tin Sides (1927)
  • Standing Pat (1928)
  • Tailoring (1925)
  • The Heavy Parade (1926)
  • Three Missing Links (1927)
  • Three of a Kind (1926)
  • Three Wise Goofs (1925)
