Roscoe Arbuckle -- All Aboard for "Laff" Land -- July 3, 2021


Rock Island Argus, 16-July-1921

100 years ago, Roscoe Arbuckle appeared in a lot of movies in a short time. He appeared in five features released during 1921.

In The Traveling Salesman, Roscoe played Bob Blake, a travelling salesman who left a train in the wrong town, and sought shelter from a rainstorm. His leading lady was Betty Ross Clarke. I keep trying to type her name as Betsy Ross Clarke.

The Traveling Salesman was based on a 1908 play by James Grant Forbes.

San Francisco's California Theater, at Fourth and Market, played The Travelling Salesman, a feature starring Roscoe Arbuckle, and Larry Semon in "The Bakery." Both men made a personal appearance. Roscoe drove up from Hollywood in his custom car.
