    Camping Out (Paramount, 1919). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    One of the biggest stars of the silent era, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle got his start on the screen in Mack Sennett's Keystone studio in 1913, where he made hundreds of one reel comedies, many with the famed Keystone Kops. By 1914, he was directing, and in 1915, he was popular enough to appear in two-reelers. In 1917, Arbuckle left Keystone to form his own production company, giving him complete creative control over his films. Second only to Chaplin as a silent comedian during this time, Arbuckle's career was scuttled in 1921 with his arrest and trial for the manslaughter death of Virginia Rappe, a young actress who died at a party held in Arbuckle's hotel suite. The Hearst papers led an inquisition against Fatty, who, although acquitted after three trials, was virtually finished in Hollywood as a result of the scandal. Nevertheless, he remains an important figure of the silent era, and paper featuring this legendary comedian is ardently sought by his many fans. Offered here is a one sheet from a picture produced at the height of his fame. It had pieces missing from the right, left, and top borders, none of which extended into the image, as well as a tear in the center of the poster, but expert professional restoration has addressed all these issues, returning the poster to a like-new state. Don't miss this opportunity to own this rare and gorgeous stone litho poster from the early days of comedy cinema. Very Good/Fine on Linen.
