Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle made his triumphant return to comedy in the six sparkling Vitaphone shorts he headlines in this collection, two co-starring Shemp Howard himself. While Fatty’s return was tragically cut short by his untimely passing, another talent was on the rise – Shemp Howard, sporting one unforgettable mug. Witness Shemp’s career path from bit player to chief second banana in the span of two short years. The 18 shorts found in this 2-Disc collection were all shot in Depression Era Brooklyn by the Vitaphone team, providing a magical (and hilarious!) look at a lost time and place.
