The Firing Squad That Can't Shoot Straight
23 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tomalio is the final film of Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle who died shortly after this was completed never having made a comeback from the scandal involving him with the death of Virginia Rappe. You could see that Fatty's heart's not in this, the film is not all that funny from his end. The real laughs in Tomalio come from Charles Judel who plays a South American general who has a firing squad that can't shoot straight.

Arbuckle is paired with another comic named Fritz Hubert and the pair seem to have an identity crisis in terms of who's the comic and who's the straight man. The two are in his mythical South American country of Tomalio where they just seem to be getting in the wig constantly of Judel who is a legend in his own mind.

Sad that Fatty Arbuckle's career had to end on such a mediocre note as Tomalio.
