Close Relations is another funny talkie Fatty Arbuckle short
23 June 2019 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was yet another funny talkie short starring Fatty Arbuckle. Here, he's visiting his uncle who's drawing up a new will. Both characters' last name is Wart. There's another long-lost cousin and also a family member with a last name of Mole. That one is played by Shemp Howard. Lots of crazy stuff happens so on that note, I recommend Close Relations.
