Buster Keaton said that the day the laughter stopped was the day that Virginia Rappe became ill during a party in Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's suite at the St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco.

Don't be fooled that just because a book is of more recent vintage that it is the "definitive" account. Greg Merritt's Room 1219 has been referred to as the "last word" on the Arbuckle case, but there is no new information presented, just bizarre "psychoanalysis" and the author's "theories" and assumptions which even he admits at times are not based on any actual evidence, all of which are designed to impugn Arbuckle and whitewash Virginia Rappe. Yallop goes over the same "positive" life story that Merritt does, but he doesn't discount out-of-hand aspects of Rappe's lifestyle and medical history that dated back to 1907. Yallop's book, the first to take an in-depth look at the case, just sticks to the facts, which can't help but be supportive of Arbuckle. Yallop, who consulted medical professionals on their opinions about the known facts of Rappe's medical issues as well as questioning Arbuckle's still living contemporaries concerning their recollections of the case, makes no outlandish claims as does Merritt, who relies almost solely on (mostly) biased newspaper reports and his own "opinion." The Day the Laughter Stopped not only remains the best account of the case, but is an invariably fascinating read.

I was amazed to see how emotional and derisive the subject of Roscoe Arbuckle's life is. 96 years after that Labor Day of 1921 in room 1219 on the top floor of a San Francisco hotel. People are still divided on the subject of Roscoe Arbuckle and his involvement with the death of Virginia Rappe.
I've been doing a lot of research on Arbuckle's life. I'm writing a play about him any and he's also a character in a book I'm writing.
The Day the Laughter Stopped isn't the best of the books I've read about Arbuckle's life, and it isn't the worst.
It actually seems to flow somewhere in between the usual Arbuckle books, miles above the exploitive but undeniably titillating chapter on Arbuckle in Hollywood Babylon. And yet much more interesting and gossipy then the silent film experts tend to write.
Information in this book seems to be based mainly on interviews with Arbuckle Roscoe's first wife, Minta.
She's always interesting, if not always reliable, and in fact she has inspired many passages in my play.
Minta was also a vaudeville performer, that's how she and Roscoe met, and she was a silent film star mostly known for costarring with Charlie Chaplin in his first films at keystone.
Minta is fiercely protective of Roscoe, even though they were separated by 1921 and divorced in 1925. She defends him not only by decrying the terrible way the press treated him while he was under arrest but also his awful treatment by Hollywood after he was exonerated. For most of his life and afterwords it seems the Minta was one of the very few to defend Arbuckle. So I guess she can be excused if some of her memories are in Roscoe's favor.
There are many people to blame in the sad story of two young lives ruined: the doctors who botched Virginia Rappe's medical treatment, the press who vilified Arbuckle before he was even tried. The San Francisco DA who tried to use a trumped up conviction for murder in the 1st degree as a stepping stone to the Governor's Mansion, and to the Hollywood studios and William Hayes who thwarted Roscoe's return to making movies.
It is only very recently that Roscoe Arbuckle's films are being found, restored, and re-evaluated and hopefully Roscoe will once again be acknowledged as one of the geniuses of silent comedy.

A horrifying example of how a few unscrupulous and ambitious people wantonly schemed to end the career, if not the life, of a basically decent man whose only real sin was that he expected his colleagues and the law enforcement authorities to do the right thing. A classic example of how a few loudly vindictive and mindlessly accusing crusaders can rapidly destroy the innocent.

I really enjoyed this book. It gave me a whole new view of this scandal and great sympathy for its victim, Roscoe Arbuckle.
