* ThoseTwoActors: Arbuckle made dozens of films with Mabel Normand (note how many times they are both mentioned in a title). He later made a bunch of movies with an up-and-comer named Creator/BusterKeaton.

Arbuckle started a singing career when he was a child, and began working in {{vaudeville}} when he was a teenager. He appeared in his first film in 1909, and started doing regular film work in 1913 after moving to Creator/UniversalPictures. Despite his size, Arbuckle was [[{{Acrofatic}} surprisingly agile and acrobatic]], and his films were known for their fast-paced comedy. One thing that his movies helped to popularize was the PieInTheFace gag -- [[UrExample the first known instance]] of a thrown pie landing in someone's face was in his 1913 short ''A Noise from the Deep''. His comedy proved to be a huge hit -- by 1914, Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures was offering him and his frequent collaborator Mabel Normand (one of Hollywood's first female writers, producers and directors) an unheard-of contract of $1000 a day, 25% of all profits and ProtectionFromEditors. By 1918, he was getting a 3-year, $3 million contract. In addition to making movies, Arbuckle managed to secure the big breaks of a number of actors whose names have become synonymous with early Hollywood, including Creator/CharlieChaplin, Creator/BusterKeaton and BobHope.

->"Acquittal is not enough for Roscoe Arbuckle. We feel that a great injustice has been done him... there was not the slightest proof adduced to connect him in any way with the commission of a crime. He was manly throughout the case and told a straightforward story which we all believe. We wish him success and hope that the American people will take the judgement of fourteen men and women that Roscoe Arbuckle is entirely innocent and free from all blame."
