Storyline

Two men like the same woman, and she prefers the large, strong one over the smaller, nimble dandy. The rivalry first comes to a head when she rejects the dandy in front of a Chinese laundry; a fight ensues, and the big guy's dog adds to the dandy's humiliation. Then, that night, during a dance held at the neighborhood fitness center, the dandy hires some thugs to beat up his rival. The plan goes awry, which precipitates chaos. Fido's on hand to add to the confusion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fatty's Faithful Fido is an excellent Fatty Arbuckle comedy
30 July 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This is an excellent Fatty Arbuckle comedy with Al St. John, his wife at the time Minta Durfee playing the girl both want, and Luke the Dog playing the title role. Lots of funny stuff involving bricks, rooftops, a dummy, a cat, a cross to mark a target, a Chinese laundry, its owner and bath inside, and a massive fistfight. Marvel at all the falls Mr. Arbuckle takes here! See Mr. St. John constantly try to either get away from Fido or have Fatty get knocked out or choked! Watch Ms. Durfee occasionally defend herself against Al! And see Fido get distracted by a cat after chasing St. John up a roof! This is one of the best Mack Sennett/Keystone comedies I've seen so far. Most highly recommended for silent movie fans especially those of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle!
