Some Post Mortem Laughs For His Movie Fans........
22 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WE BELIEVE THAT it was Mark Twain who is credited with saying that: "A Lie can get half way around the World before the Truth can even get its shoes on."

NO WHERE IS this more applicable than in the case of famed Comedian of the Silent Film days than Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. The huge funny-man had his career ruined (and probably his life expectancy abruptly curtailed) following some flimsy accusation of rape from a film "starlet"; who later died of a ruptured bladder. Virginia Rappe had been known to have frequently made such claims before against several others.

AFTER UNDERGOING THREE trials (the first two had ended with hung juries) Arbuckle had these charges dismissed against him with an apology from the Judge & Jury. The whole legal episode was supposedly the responsibility of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and some other Yellow Journalists; who hated Arbuckle and the Hollywood establishment in general.

TODAY'S REVIEWED FILM, this two reeler sound short, IN THE DOUGH (Vitaphone/Warner Brothers, 1933) was the penultimate installment in what was an outstanding comeback effort. The great film comic tragically passed away before its release in 1933.

AS FOR THE movie itself, it was overall a sample of a sort of standard fare of the day. Its threadbare premise is more than sufficient as a framework and backdrop for the story. In short; a baker is being victimized by a gang of extortionists; who are headed up by Lionel Stander and Shemp Howard. Arbuckle answers the "help wanted-baker" window sign and gets entangled in the crossfire. An ongoing additional gag is thrown in with a prim, proper and prissy man who insists on certain specifics ion a made to order cake.

WITH THE APPEARANCE of a young, but tough female, who turns out to be the gun moll of the gang, the story hits its zenith of ultimate action, plot twists and merriment.

IT IS FORTUNATE on our part to be able to screen such film rarities on our home computers; this one being courtesy of our friends at

JUST WHAT HEIGHTS that Mr. Roscoe Arbuckle could have achieved in this early sound era comeback will never be known. He remains a most tragic figure in the checkered history of Tinsel Town; having "cashed in his chips" at the age of 46!
