That Little Band of Gold finds Roscoe Arbuckle newly married, but henpecked, living with both wife and mother-in-law. He's far from ready to settle down as a night at the opera where he winds up taking both his women with him proves.
The wife in this Mack Sennett feature is Mabel Normand. Said that both would have their careers end in scandal and die so young. Mabel has little to do in this film, but look winsome and hurt.
Watching Arbuckle perform he reminded me very much of Jackie Gleason when he would do his Reginald Van Gleason character. Same kind of loutish behavior even for one in a tuxedo. Mabel was the ever suffering Alice Kramden like wife, bringing him down to earth.
That Little Band of Gold was an interesting insight into one of the characters that Arbuckle created.
