Roscoe Conkling Arbuckle aka Fatty Arbuckle (March 24 1887June 29 1933) was an American silent film comedian. Arbuckle is noted as one of the most popular actors of his era, but he is best remembered for a heavily publicized criminal prosecution that halted his screen career. Although he was acquitted by a jury with a written apology, the trial's scandal ruined the actor, who would not appear on screen again for another 10 years. The scandal is mentioned in Hollywood Babylon.
