Silent screen legend Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, master of short subject comedies, made his debut as the star of feature-length films in George Melford's production of THE ROUND UP (1920). Arbuckle portrays Sheriff Slim Hoover in this action-packed drama, a "legitimate" role that showcases Arbuckle's brilliant slapstick humor as well as his impressive skills as a serious dramatic actor. This first-class western has everything, including silent film comedy mega-star Buster Keaton in an uncredited cameo as an Apache Indian! Pulled from distribution in 1921, following an unfortunate scandal for which Arbuckle was found entirely innocent, this historic film has been unavailable to the general public for over 95 years - until now. Meticulously restored from the 35mm archival master, preserved by the Paramount Archives and the Library of Congress - Packard Campus of Audiovisual Conservation, this critically acclaimed video release features the long-lost original scene tints, and a new music score composed and performed by celebrated accompanist Donald Sosin! Synopsis: After Dick Lane (Irving Cummings) disappears during a prospecting trip, his fiancé Echo Allen (Mabel Julienne Scott) agrees to marry Dick's friend Jack Payson (Tom Forman) who is harboring a secret about his fallen pal. When "half-breed" Buck McKee (Wallace Beery), a rival for Echo's affections, robs the express office and points the blame at Jack, it is up to jovial Sheriff Slim Hoover (Roscoe Arbuckle) to solve the crime. A CineMuseum Archival Edition/Digital restorations directed and curated by Paul E. Gierucki
