Arbuckle was charged with manslaughter; twice, the trial ended in a hung jury and in a third trial he was acquitted, but public opinion forced Arbuckle's retirement from the screen. In Very Good condition with some tears, pieces missing from the edges, mild toning, and tape residue on the reverse. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
