~A Reckless Romeo~
1917
~Plot Synopsis~
In Roscoe \"Fatty\" Arbuckle's second independent two-reeler, Fatty goes to the park and flirts with
another man's girl (Alice Lake). As a result, he gets a sound thrashing. To explain his injuries when he
gets home to his family, he spins a wild tale about how he came to the defense of a little blind woman.
The truth comes out a few nights later when he and his folks go to a cinema, and they see that Fatty's
escapade in the park has been filmed for posterity. The object of his flirtation is there with her
boyfriend, and all mayhem breaks loose.
