It's very fortunate that this Roscoe Arbuckle detail has been rescued and carefully restored, because it is a very funny and enjoyable detail from one of the finest screen comics of the era. Much of the storyline consists of familiar material, but it adds some nice tons as well, and it has a brisk pace and many nice quality slapstick gags. Just seeing Arbuckle, Al St. John, Monte Banks, and Frank Hayes romping around and chasing every another provides numerous laughs and smiles.The storyline has a setup that Arbuckle used numerous times, with Roscoe's hero in love with a woman whose father (played by Hayes) prefers a rival played by St. John. Banks is added to the mix as a farmhand who joins in the romantic tangle as something of a wild card. At different times the characters whack every another with brooms, fall down wells, receive into problem with ladders, and search themselves in numerous another predicaments.One thing that really makes this one work is the camaraderie among the characters as they scheme vs every another and occasionally shift alliances with one another. The cast works together very well. Also, the timing, aside from a couple of awkward moments in setting up some of the more far-fetched gags, is expert. The combination makes the nice comedy concepts very funny, and it makes even the familiar ones amusing.The notes that come with the Laughsmith/Mackinac Media collection of Arbuckle details give a detailed description of the painstaking and time-consuming process by which this detail was finally re-assembled and restored. All of those involved in the project can take satisfaction in having provided a very welcome surprise for everyone who enjoys silent comedies.
Here's nice news for fanatics of Roscoe Arbuckle: a recently recovered, newly restored two-reel comedy from his heyday is actually accessible on DVD. This film, simply titled "Love," is included in the 4-disc box set named The Forgotten Movies of Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle, and for my cash it's one of the definite stand-outs of the set.This short was originally released as part of Arbuckle's Comique series of 1917-19. Fanatics know that most of these movies featured the young Buster Keaton in different helping roles, but Love was made while Buster was still overseas in the Army, so the role that most likely would have been his has been assigned Monty Banks, a charming comic who soon starred in a series of his own. As for the plot, Roscoe is once more pitted vs icky Al St. John for the hand of a young lady, this time played by a strikingly pretty actress called Winifred Westover, who soon married cowboy star William S. Hart. Winnie's father is played by a strikingly UN-attractive hero actor called Frank Hayes, who looked like a gargoyle. Once again, Hayes has been cast as a surly farmer who tries to force his daughter to marry Al St. John -- a guy no girl would ever willingly marry, in these comedies -- because he has more property than terrible but lovable Roscoe. After an attempted elopement fails, Roscoe nonetheless comes up with a stratagem to prevail and victory the girl.Love details few elaborately staged acrobatic sequences that display a lot more ingenuity and advance planning than the obviously improvised knockabout of Keystone days. The botched elopement is a highlight, but to my taste the routine involving Hayes falling into a well over and over is repeated a tiny past the limit of funniness. (In college days I knew a drama professor, and when his aspiring playwright students repeated themselves he'd say: "I think you've visited that particular well once too often." Those words are especially apt to describe this scene.) One of the funniest bits is also one of the simplest, i.e. when Roscoe, rejected as a suitor by his girl's father, plays out his anguish in deliberately over-the-top, melodramatic fashion. He's hilarious, and demonstrates true acting skill. This is also the situation during an extended stage played in drag. Drag sequences turn up in many of Arbuckle's films, but here, surprisingly enough, Roscoe is not only funny but downright poignant.Arbuckle's development as a performer and director is clear when one watches this movie back to back with When Love Took Wings, made at Keystone in 1915 and also featuring Al St. John and Frank Hayes in roles very related to the ones they enjoy here: Love is a more polished and satisfying comedy in each way. The very familiarity of the plot motifs and gags create this movie feel like a Roscoe's Best Hits album, a pack of tried-and-true routines he'd worked and reworked for years, but actually executed with more finesse than during his apprenticeship.The pamphlet that accompanies the discs in the newest box set contains an essay on the restoration of Love that makes fascinating reading for buffs. It's explained that the movie we see today was painstakingly pieced together from two fragmented prints held in far-flung archives, one in Italy and one in the Netherlands. After all that work it would have been a let-down if the film itself had been terrible to start with, but happily this comedy is a notable addition to the Arbuckle canon, and a true treat for fans. The restoration team deserves a hearty round of applause for a job well done.
This movie is part of the four DVD set of the "Forgotten Movies of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle" from Mackinac Media. While less of his old comedy shorts remain that those of Chaplin (who lived much longer and preserved his movies whereas Arbuckle died very young a boy despised by the public), the great folks at Mackinac did an exceptional job tracking down his films, restoring them to almost fresh condition in many cases, and in this case, piecing together a movie from different sources to bring to life a film previously thought to be lost! Unfortunately, an necessary part of the plot has been seen quite a several times before in Arbuckle films--the appearance of neighbor Al St. John with a letter from his father proposing that Al marry the farmer's daughter. And, in this situation as in most another situations when this storyline element was used, the father agrees for the daughter! So, it's up to Fatty to save the woman and victory her heart. This movie isn't exactly fresh material, but is handled so nicely that it still merits an 8--a pretty and well made comedy short.
