I bought a 4 dvd set of Arbuckle's Forgotten films. I have only watched a couple so far but they are really cute & funny. The set came with a small booklet. Its about 35 pages long. I have scanned the first part for you to read. I will scan the rest & post here & there. some great pics. Keep checking back in this thread for more to come. :heart2:

Hope you can read all these. I made them smaller so the images arent so big but the type is smeary now. My next scans I will make a little larger.

Thank you, V! :bounce: What a great thing to share! :cool: I love his look in the fourth picture. He looks like himself and not a character or a Hollywood photo op. And you have given me a reason to post the pic below. I found it and was so excited about it but couldn't work it into a tidbit until now :highfive: :omg: You will recognize this costar from Veronica's first link... :grin:

It's Luke the Dog! :goodvibes:

Thanks for those scans, Veronica. What a fascinating subject, restoring old movies! They have to be detectives, chemists, artists and even magicians to get the end results of a complete movie. :film:

It’s sad how it’s only been in the last few years that the value of these old movies as entertainment and history has been recognized, and it’s too late for so many of them.

I watched a show once on TV that showed how they restored “My Fair Lady”, and all the work that went with it - and they had many different sources and prints to work from. Imagine there only being one or two incomplete and deteriorated copies and getting it all put together. Wow!


The copy of “The Cook” and Other Treasures (Arbuckle and Keaton) that I ordered on Friday came in today, so I have some "research" to watch... :cool:

DITHOT - the setting of “The Cook” is …..The Bull Pup Café……guess who’s the star in this short? :-)

Oh, I adore Luke! He steals the show everytime he's on screen.

Buster Keaton borrowed Luke once in awhile for his own 2-reelers. The Scarecrow is hysterical - Luke chases Keaton all through the film, including around and around the top wall of an un-roofed building. That dog was a heck of lot more coordinated than I could ever be.

It was amazing how they restored those old films. I got this on Amazon & it was kind of expensive but now that I have read all this I am glad I made the purchase. I get to see Roscoes films but I think they deserve the sale to put that much time & energy into something. Its not like they will get rich off this dvd. that is true passion for this man & his work. I admire anyone for having that about anything. If it had been 100 years since Johnnys work by God I would be doing the same thing. lolol

Thanks for posting that, V. I have been interested in buying some of Arbuckl'es work, as I'm not sure I've ever seen any of it, and that looks like a really good selection to start with. :cool:

I will try to finish the book up tomorrow but it will be a long read on the last section.
