"Fatty" Arbuckle(1887-1933) was a silent film actor,comedian,director,and screenwriter.In September 1921,Arbuckle attended a party at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. Bit player Virginia Rappe(1895-1921)became drunk and ill at the party; she died four days later at a sanitarium known for performing abortions.Arbuckle was accused by a well-known madam of raping and accidentally killing Rappe.Everything was wrong and was led by the newspapers ready for anything.
Design credits:
Acquitted in the third trial he received a written apology from the jury;however,the trial's scandal has mostly overshadowed his legacy as a pioneering comedian.Though the ban on his films was lifted within a year,Arbuckle only worked sparingly through the 1920s.He died of a heart attack,aged 46.Fatty was not guilty and yet on 1922,6 days after his acquittal,Hays(Senator)banned Roscoe Arbuckle from ever working in US.movies again…
