Down On The Farm, With The Farmer's Daughter
21 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This Fatty Arbuckle-Mabel Normand finds the two of them down on the farm where her dad doesn't approve of his daughter's interest in a guy with no future. He's got plans for her to marry the son of the richest man in the county who coincidentally enough has the mortgage on the property.

I nearly blew my mind when I saw the handsome, but shallow suitor was Al St. John who later became a comic sidekick in hundreds of B westerns. He also was Fatty Arbuckle's nephew.

Arbuckle and Normand are a pretty funny pair and that last scene with them fleeing in a car to get over the state line so they can marry is pretty hilarious. Remember what cars were back in those days, rather tricky things and Fatty's Flivver seems to have a mind of its own.

Ironic indeed that both Arbuckle and Normand were involved in two of the biggest scandals and earliest ones in film history and both came to a premature end. Still they are funny pair to enjoy and appreciate today.
