Mack Sennett’s winning duo of Arbuckle and Normand were dispatched to interact with the ongoing exposition in San Diego and chaos ensued, naturally. Arbuckle’s flirty ways anger Normand and she’s not someone you want to get angry.
The humor isn’t as good a the team’s later work, to be honest, but the historical content is priceless.
(By the way, you can see more imagery of that exposition in the 1917 film ‘49-’17.)
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.
Arbuckle finally goes too far and ends up ducked in a fountain.
If it were a dessert it would be: Hydrox. Of its time but we can still have a lot of fun.
Availability: Released as part of the four-disc Forgotten Films of Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle box set.
