Director: Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle; Cast: Roscoe Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, Al St. John, Josephine Stevens, Arthur Earle

the-butcher-boy-1917 - EditedPlaying the role of a butcher in a general store, Fatty Arbuckle falls in love with a cashier and goes to great lengths to win her favor. A typical Arbuckle slapstick comedy, The Butcher Boy may be full of laughs, but it is most notable as the film in which Buster Keaton makes his debut. Though playing a minor role, Keaton does garner a good deal of screen time as a customer that gets stuck in a molasses spill (Klaus Ming August 2016).
