ROSCOE "FATTY" ARBUCKLE(1887 - 1933) Rotund star of the Keystone Kops silent comedies, his career was ruined by his involvement in the sex-related death of actress Virginia Rappe. Bold ink signature "Roscoe Arbuckle" cut from the back of a check, barely affected by a light red ink cancel. Framed beautifully, the signature floating above a mat, with images of Arbuckle in and out of character and an inset of his obituary from the New York Times. A terrific display, one of the best we've seen!
Estimate $ 400-500
