Title   2 Portraits of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle

Binding   Paper

Edition   Original Photographs

Publisher   New York Apeda 1920

Seller ID   009849

2 very nice original 8" x 10" photograph portraits of the silent screen comedian Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle who is most remembered today for the murder trial that ruined his life and career even though after 3 trials he was acquitted of all charges. Arbuckle was a major star only second in popularity to Chaplin, but after the scandal he was finished in movies. In the early 30's he started to make films again but his bad luck continued with him dying at the early age of 1946 in 1933. The first portrait is a close-up of him taken by the famous photo studio Apeda which I would date around 1920. The photo has wear: some creasing, chipping and a few old tape mends to the verso. The 2nd portrait printed on heavy stock paper is a full length one of Arbuckle doing a soft shoe with his bowler hat balanced on his extended arm. Although from the teens or early 20's the date stamped on the verso is Nov. 16, 1932. which leads me to believe that this photo is an early reprint. There appears that a photo caption was attached but was removed.
