"The Many Trials of Fatty Arbuckle"
Dr. Mark Hull
U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth

In 1921 native Kansan Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle was the highest paid star in Hollywood but that star fell in late 1921 when he was accused of an unspeakable crime. Three trials followed, and most people today cannot remember if he was found guilty or innocent. Attorney and historian Dr. Mark Hull will unveil the evidence; you render the verdict.
