Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) sepia tinted print still photo, USA. Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, At St. John, dir; Fatty Arbuckle; Paramount. Brilliant and iconic portrait of the famous silent film comedian. Not only was this Arbuckle’s first film for his newly formed company with Paramount Pictures, called Comique, but it was the film debut of Buster Keaton. The original typed blurb on the verso tells all about Arbuckle’s work as a creator of motion pictures and all about his newly formed partnership with the studio. Photo is coded P116-2 and Apeda. Some edge wear and chip at bottom left corner. NEAR FINE.
