Wished on Mabel (1915)

** (out of 4)

Fatty takes his girlfriend Mabel and her mother to the park where they are preyed on by a thief. This one here has a few more gags including some eye poking, which probably influenced The Stooges.

Fatty and Mabel at the San Diego Exposition (1915)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Another laugh less team up with Fatty Arbuckle and Mabel Normand. Fatty goes to the fair where his eye for other women doesn't sit too well with his wife. Not enough slapstick leads to zero laughs.

Mabel and Fatty's Wash Day (1915)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Laughless comedy has Fatty and his neighbor (Mabel Norman) doing laudrey and falling for one another, which doesn't sit well with her abusive boyfriend.
