roscoe "fatty" arbuckle was a rising star, signing a $1 million contract with paramount in 1921- an unheard-of sum at the time.

that same year, fatty took a vacation in san francisco and threw a party at the st. francis hotel. one of the party-goers, virginia rappe, fell ill during the party and died several days later.
fatty was accused, and tried two times for rape and manslaughter, both trials ending in mistrail.
at the third trial, the jury took 6 minutes to return a not guilty verdict.

but fatty's reputation was ruined, and he was banned from the screen.

he died in 1943 at the age of 46.
