Roscoe Conklin "Fatty" Arbuckle.

Roscoe Conklin "Fatty" Arbuckle
They called him "The Prince of Whales."

I believed the champagne bottle story of his downfall until recently.  Like many things, it is more complicated than a telling anecdote.  Everyone has a story, but we don't always write it ourselves.

He had a real name, and it wasn't Fatty.  Rest in peace, Mr. Arbuckle.
