Denounces Detractors of "Fatty" Arbuckle -- October 29, 2018

Exhibitors' Herald, 26-October-2018
"Any statements to the effect that Roscoe ("fatty") Arbuckle does not personally write and direct his own pictures are false."

Moving Picture World, 05-October-1918
Roscoe made a one reeler to promote Liberty Bonds to pay for the war.  I think Chaplin's "The Bond" is the only film of this type that survives.

Motion Picture News, 19-October-1918
Roscoe's western, "The Sheriff," was made while Buster Keaton was in the army.

Motion Picture Magazine, October, 1918
An unusually dapper portrait of Buster's nephew and co-star, Al St John.
