1919 Studio photograph from the long lost silent film "Love" starring Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle. Images from films of this era are almost impossible to find, especially shorts (this one was 23 minutes) that were not huge successes. This film though has to take the cake as one of the weirdest plots ever. Fatty likes a girl, she cant marry him so he dresses like a woman, gets hired at the farm and has to fend off her fathers advances. He stands in as a woman in her practice wedding rehearsal and then after they say "I do" reveals to the dad that the wedding was real because he was a man all along! Oh the early days of Hollywood! This is almost certainly the only image from this film that has ever been offered and it is a beauty!
