    Buster Keaton, Fatty Arbuckle and Alice Lake Double-Weight Candid Pictures . Two Legends of silent screen comedy, Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton, pose together with actress Alice Lake in this very rare, double-weight, original 8" x 10" still. Film title unknown, but it dates from the 1917-18 period when director/writer/actor Arbuckle was giving Keaton his first screen exposure and Ms. Lake was regularly co-starring with them. Ms. Lake smiles, but Arbuckle and Keaton look strangely unhappy, as if they're somehow seeing their private and professional tragedies looming before them. Outdoor background, with bridge and garden statuary, adds to the picture's charm. So does the knowledge that Keaton, after Arbuckle's catastrophic sex scandal, supported him for a time in gratitude for the stardom Arbuckle had provided him. A poignant picture, in Excellent condition.
