The Short History of Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle [0:38:28] | Wayne provides listeners with a short course on Roscoe Arbuckle and how he was railroaded ostensibly because he was famous and rich. William Randolph Heart was to have said at the time that ‘he made more money off Arbuckle than the sinking of the Lusitania’. Think ‘fake news’ was something that was just invented? Not so.

An Arbuckle Movie Curse? [0:41:50] | Before Chris Farley’s death, there was talk that he was in discussion with David Mamet regarding a movie based on the life of Roscoe Arbuckle. There was also talk that John Belushi and John Candy had also considered similar projects. All of them are gone now leading to the idea there may be an Arbuckle movie curse?
