Tracy; I'm film obsessed, a historian, a painter, a costumer; I love the blues, Led Zeppelin, comedy, and spend most of my time doing research.

The Cook, 1918, was the last short Buster made before he was shipped off to fight in WWI.  The footage was lost for years, but thankfully recovered and restored in the last decade.  This is my personal favourite of the Arbuckle-Keaton films.  The back and forth between them as they toss food across the kitchen and eat spaghetti is perfect.  Buster also brakes out his famous dance moves which would so entertain the troops in France.  It was tempting to make all gifs of him dancing, but the film, as it survives, is funny and Buster has firmly taken a credit over Al St. John as Roscoe’s partner.  Luke the dog has some pretty impressive scenes as well, most notably running up a roller coaster.
