And Don't Call Me Fatty!
14 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The negative review of this little seen movie must come from somebody who is a huge Virginia Rappe fan. Leap Year is by no stretch a comic masterpiece but it has it's share of belly laughs. I didn't find that there was much jumping up and down and grimacing in front of the camera in this picture. Arbuckle is a very agile man who could pull off some nice stunts with the best of 'em. The compromising situations Arbuckle's character finds himself in is what sets the tone for the hilarity that ensues in Leap Year. Aside from this movie being shown in 1921 it hadn't been shown until some 60 years later. The picture has a beautiful tint to it and is recommended to fans of silent comedy.
