Fatty Arbuckle as Writer
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the same way that Charles Chaplin made the transition from actor to writer, director and actor, Fatty Arbuckle followed in his footsteps and started writing his own material, and appeared with Buster Keaton in the process. It's the way forward for all budding actors.
