Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle
Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle,
Until February 21, 2008, this film had never been shown theatrically anywhere in America because of Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle's murder trial, except for special screenings such as the ones in Washington, D.C. at the American Film Institute theater at the Kennedy Center on 18 March 1981, in Los Angeles CA at the Fairfax Theatre 10 April 1981 and at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley CA on 22 August 1993.

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.
