CRAP !! 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 Mistrial. 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.
