"Course, Roscoe's chicken and waffles. I'm definitely going to get that for lunch. That sounds so good. Number 13. Carol see, Um, and another amazing news for me. Singles are having kids with strangers is part of the co parenting trend. I'm not making this up. This is apparently a new trend. A TTE this point. I will probably have to have a child with a stranger. So trend is you find a stranger and you have a child because both parties want have a kid, but they don't want the relationship and then hopefully, in their own minds are going to be friendly the rest of their life. Exactly. They're skipping their skipping marriage. There's they're going straight to the part of about a baby carriage. Very millennial. Very millennial. I saw I read your fascinating people being shot from the fact that can read, But I read an article years ago, and it predicted what the future would look like, Right? And they're saying the only reason that Marriage is continuing is usually because of the whole concept of having the kids and raising the kids together. But if they can figure out like they do in the animal kingdom were more of a society they they worked together to raise a supposed to, you know, actual parent raising. That we would marriage could be obsolete and the way that people used to look at divorce. Kapita never that many In many years ago, we had a neighbor that was divorce and my parents like, Don't go in that guy's yard. He's divorced. It was and I think people going to start looking at married people like that, Like married people are the creepy ones. Because they're like, Don't go over there. They're spending the rest of their lives together in monogamy, weirdos. I think I think we're you know, maybe 100 years out from that, But I can see that happening in the future. For sure, I mean, Why not? If you if you have someone you respect and you care about and you think that they're smart, and they have the same values as you might not have a child with them. I think that's that's great and and again, probably in my future. Um, you know, 2020 cannot get any weirder away. It can crescent shaped UFO's are caught hovering over Seattle.

I don't think we need to make a landing. Was there more than one report on that over Seattle because I I find it fascinating. And that's when I get really excited and intrigued when there's Mohr than one person who says they saw something hovering over their town or city, So it looks like it's just It's just the one man Mr Scott wearing, however, I mean, he sounds trustworthy.

"Hi, I'm Vanessa Richardson and Corduroy. And this is season. Two of famous fates falls from grace. This season were examining once revered historical figures whose stories ended in less than savory ways every week. We're bringing you two episodes examining the lives of two fascinating people in the same industry, they were beloved for their incredible accomplishments until they were reviled for their sins. This week were covering actors who dazzled on the screen until their personal lives became Greek tragedies in this episode roscoe Fatty arbuckle. The silent film eras, favorite, funny man, until charges of sexual assault and manslaughter left him, blacklisted and destitute despite his acquittal. The format of old silent films wasn't complicated. Actors emotive without words accompanied by live music played in the theater when. Necessary it appeared between scenes on slides called Inter titles. Flawless comedic timing was absolutely essential, so was the ability to convey grief, joy or romantic love through the eyes alone, and if an actor wanted to make the audience laugh, he'd better be prepared to slip and fall on cue or take a pie to the face. Those who excelled at this art were rewarded with fame and fortune, not to mention the love of their adoring fans. And aside from Charlie Chaplin in September of Nineteen Twenty one, the public love actor more than thirty four year old roscoe fatty arbuckle. From his paramount contract are buckle earned a cool million bucks per year or about thirteen million dollars today he drove a thirty four thousand dollar custom Pierce Arrow convertible and he lived a twenty room mansion. He was box office gold, a variety magazine couldn't contain. It's enthusiasm for his latest picture crazy to marry. Their critic wrote Tuesday at the real toe theater. The laughter was so loud as to give the impression. The Auditorium was being cannonade. The key to our buckles, comedic genius was his willingness to transgress social norms. Starting with his appearance, he weighed two hundred seventy five pounds a size so unusual in cinema that for the first few years of his career, he received Fan mail addressed to that fat boy. I'll less clever actor might have leaned on cheap pantomime 's. Getting stuck in narrow doorways or over eating onscreen. Are Buckle refused to do either instead he used his size, and his nickname fatty to play a wider variety of roles than thin men could. He routinely cross dressed for his films often portraying the portly matron, essentially a white jazzy version of Tyler Perry's media. Prohibition, era morality normally considered cross dressing perverse, but our buckle got away with it on the grounds of his size, the public saw his heaviness as immature and a sexual, therefore he could wear dresses and be called playful, not kinky. Not only could he play? Both men and women are buckle sometimes acted like a baby literally in several of his films. He played a comedic persona. He called baby fatty. This broad range made him prolific between nineteen O, eight and nineteen twenty one he was cast in more than one hundred and fifty films. However he was always careful to separate his onscreen persona from his private life. Our buckle made it clear to his friends and interviewers. That fatty was just the character. He played in movies. offscreen he insisted on being addressed by his first name. Roscoe, and even when he used his half for laughs, his intention was always to represent and celebrate people size rather than denigrate them. This September nineteen, twenty one issue of photo play magazine featured an exclusive interview with our buckle entitled Love Confessions of a fat man in the article, he quipped. The fat man as lover is going to be the best seller on the market for the next few years. Perhaps are buckles. Fame fueled his urge to flout the rules specifically the eighteenth amendment. That's the one ratified in Nineteen Nineteen, prohibiting the sale or possession of alcohol in the United States. Prohibition wasn't even an inconvenience to someone as wealthy as our buckle. He quite enjoyed it. As long as a hall remained, illegal access to liquor was a powerful social currency. Moonshine became a way for rich men like our buckle to flaunt their status, impress women and attract guests to their parties. Drinking was one of our buckles favorite hobbies especially in groups. That's why on September Third Nineteen Twenty one. He ditched work for play. He was supposed to appear in a Labor Day parade, promoting paramount pictures on September fifth, driving the Pierce Arrow. Advertised his involvement heavily. But our buckle was in no mood to engage his fans a few days earlier, he'd suffered chemical burns to his buttocks. Accidentally, sitting on an acid soaked rag while having his car serviced. The embarrassing injury forced arbuckle to sit on a donut shaped padded rubber ring, so he wasn't in parading spirits. And besides when of our buckles, many friends, twenty-seven-year-old small-time director Fred Fish Back Heady Jin party planned in San, Francisco with rooms, guests and liquor already secured. All arbuckle had to do to have a good time was get himself and Fred there. So on Saturday morning arbuckle blew off the paramount parade in favor of the open road in addition to fish back along for the ride was. Chairman of thirty two year, old actor who specialized in playing villains and bad boy types noticeably absent was our buckles. Wife Minta durfee. They were living out a trial separation and our buckle was happy to go party without her. That night when the Pierce Arrow finally roared into San Francisco, our buckle seated on his rubber donut steered it to the opulent Saint.

He could pass on his wealth of racketeering experience to Roscoe run the bookmaking business and he often dined at rose home with his family. In the Mafia the divide between friend and colleague is inherently muddy to bring a new member into the family is to vouch for them by opening the door to the banana organization. Lefty had staked his life on brass goes loyalty. Which means that if things went sideways both of their lives would be forfeit. A career spent dealing in these life and death. Absolutes may have walked reg- aero's comprehension of violence to him. Aggression was a form of currency something to be bonded and sold and as a racketeer. Bloodshed was a key part of the business model without the threat of violence. His Marx would have less incentive to open their wallets.

He murdered twenty-six people either to serve his own interests or those of the people paying him when the occasion called for it he reached for his two pistols one for each hand. Earning him his other nickname to guns. According to pistone regierung may have had a reputation as a killer but in his everyday life he didn't often resort to violence to him. It seemed bloodshed was a business transaction. And if that upset You well. That wasn't his problem. What was his problem was Donnie BRASCO agent? Stones initial assignment was a six month.

In July of Nineteen eighty-one they visited the head of the crew. Sonny black in person to tell him the truth about brass goes identity for the mistake of allowing an FBI agent to infiltrate the Mafia sonny black was murdered and had his hands cut off by his fellow mobsters. It was a fate that was meant to await lefty Jero as well but he was arrested and held in custody by the FBI for his own protection and for the protection of their undercover agent at reject rose trial prosecutors revealed that he had made a concerted effort to find and kill agent pistone wants his betrayal was revealed but he never got the chance. The evidence pistone had collected led to over one hundred convictions including Gyros ironically for a man whose business was governed by murder kindness to someone.

I'm in in many ways some folks are saying he kind of was refraining what happens that Republicans who voted to acquit they were not necessarily all of them doing that and saying that he was necessarily vindicated do you think we will see more of this tone in today's remarks well I mean we definitely expect that the president will continue this if he was feeling that way at a prayer breakfast which is typically a bi partisan non political events this event that he has more or less that called for the sick sole purpose of being political and partisan we expected to gold quite a bit further well you know his supporters might say he has every right he's very angry he feels he was unjustly put through this and we got another sense of the tone last night when the president retweeted a video denigrating Mitt Romney as we said that Romney was the only Republican to also vote for convicting the president on this video you know it's very insulting it calls him in a secret asset for Democrats and then president trump's son Donald Trump junior tweeted out a picture of that Romney in loose jeans it's called mom jeans and it has the P. word on it this vulgar slow for women that his father also used in the access Hollywood tape so I you know I Usha I'm just warning do you think we'll hear any of that kind of scorched language against Mitt Romney today I wouldn't think that scorched we as the president at some of his rallies he they do get he may get a bit raunchy but not I didn't I didn't mean there aren't you hardly you don't need royally because way in yeah I they yeah I think rami absolutely I I you can never say a hundred percent but I would be very surprised if he didn't at least make some type of a remark related to rhyme even if he doesn't name him when you look at the president's Twitter feed which is the way that we can look at and kind of get a sense of what he may be feeling when you look at what he tweeted after his acquittal you didn't get a lot of her rate I'm the best I'm the greatest but you did get like you pointed out that tweet about Romney and then you got another tweet this morning about if Romney had done more against former president Obama when he was running against him maybe he would have been president if you went after a bomb of the way he went after me so it does seem like this is very much at the the front of the president's mind right now the fact that Romney voted against them now Kelsey I you cover Congress I'm I mean do you think that Romney will get any credit for his vote from any Republicans the Republicans I talked to extensively yesterday more or less said that they were aware that out of senator on these feelings that they they weren't they knew that he would likely go a different way and none of them that I spoke to were really interested in holding it against him particularly it was very interesting talking to some of the folks in leadership who said that this was a vote about each individual conscience in each individual's beliefs and that there would be no holding it against him I sent a Tory leader Mitch McConnell did a press conference and he was asked repeatedly if Romney would be in the dog house or if there were any repercussions and he said that in the Senate the most important vote is your next vote and that he works well with Romney and he expects that he will continue to be a valuable valuable member of the Republican

Our buckle had fallen from beloved comedic icon to Public Enemy Number One San Francisco District Attorney in Matthew Brady nearly fell over himself in his scramble to prosecute the case he was a well known attorney and was gunning to run for governor in the near future. Prosecuting a national headline case was the perfect way for him to get name recognition and support for a successful campaign bringing down a national villain. which surely bolster turnout at the polls within hours of taking on the case Brady promised he'd bring our buckle down down for rape and murder? The grand jury hearing was held the Tuesday after Labor Day. Nineteen twenty one. The grand jury sole job was to determine if there was enough evidence for a trial Brady arrived at the hearing confident. He had a murder case in the bag but it quickly became apparent turned that Maud delmonte story had some gaping homes during her hour on the stand. She contradicted herself repeatedly she. He also admitted she'd had between eight and ten drinks during the party. meaning she'd been quite drunk when she entered room twelve nineteen furthermore it was impossible for her to have seen everything she claimed to have firsthand knowledge of because she had been locked in the bathroom of room.

Meanwhile his other two witnesses Alice Blake and another actress named Z. Provost took the stand with week. Stories that contradicted their original accounts to his dismay. The grand jury came to a decision in the early hours of Wednesday morning. They did recommend a trial but only for manslaughter not murder. Meanwhile protest against our buckle was only growing especially among women's rights groups. They were outside the courthouse every day often by the thousands Brady who wanted very much to in public votes made a risky decision key ignored the recommendation of the grand jury and proceeded with murder charges.

Brady was pushing for a much worse sentence than was legally recommended and Brady was hiding something. The hearing made it clear that Maud delmonte story was largely made up. But he's still touted her testimony as a smoking gun because because of the murder accusation are buckle was legally not allowed to be released on bail. This meant he had to remain in jail constantly hounded by inmates and journalists through the end of the trial it was clear that Brady wasn't trying to solve the case he was trying into bring down Hollywood's Big Star no matter what it took to make himself look like a hero in a moment. The trial of the century threatens to bring down a comedy legend now back to the story not two weeks after Virginia repays mysterious. Death are buckle had fallen from America's favorite star to most hated villain countless theaters across the country. Country had pulled our buckles films. Even paramount had cancelled screenings at its own events. A theater in Wyoming made national news when cowboys shot up a screen still daring to play in our buckle film. He was held up. As a symbol of justice. Paramount halted payments arbuckle indefinitely and universal studios became the first of several studios to add a morality clause to its contracts so that it could the legally drop anyone involved in future scandals on September twenty second nineteen twenty one. The preliminary phase of the trial proceeded in the women's Court for five days. Witnesses were called in and questioned so that the judge could determine whether murder charges were in fact legally believable. Ma delmonte was not among the witnesses called. Even the time people speculated it was because there was something fishy in her testimony. Brady was hoping to push the case through. Even without her he was only partially successful on September twenty eight. The judge made his decision like the grand jury. He agreed there was not enough information to try. Our buckle for murder the charge was downgraded to manslaughter. Slaughter are buckle wept openly the downgraded charge meant. He was finally allowed to leave jail.

The judge had to pronounce the case a mistrial and set a second date are buckle. Wasn't off the hook yet. And neither were the movie studios they'd watched our buckles sales plummet and the movie industry as a whole had come under fire since the case so on December December Eighth Nineteen Twenty one a group of twelve studio heads got together to come up with a plan for how to move forward. Protest groups had been and try to shut down the movies almost as soon as motion picture work began twenty-five years earlier in eighteen ninety six. Thomas Edison's forty-seven second film. The kiss became one of the very first publicly screened motion pictures and one of the very first sources of a public outcry in this short piece. A man and a woman kiss. That's it immediately. Editorial writers called not just for its censorship but for police action against the film's supposedly loose morals in one thousand nine hundred. Six official investigations began to try. Try improve the negative impact motion pictures had on the conduct of the working class within a year. Chicago City Council passed the country's his first film.

Four States assembled boards responsible for censoring films in one case a man was even arrested by the US government for treason then because he made a film that was critical of the US and its allies during World War One film. Censorship was serious business but the film film industry pushed back in early. One Thousand Nine hundred sixteen interested parties within the National Board of Review of motion pictures. Banded together to to focus the organization on looking at various state legal requirements for censorship then prescreen films for possible problems but it. It wasn't a foolproof solution in Nineteen Fifteen D W Griffith had released America's first feature film birth of a nation human rights groups including the N.. Double ACP called for the Censorship of this movie due to its depiction of race. Some communities banned the film outright to try to prevent it from sparking local race riots. The state of Ohio banned the film entirely the producers fought back and the case made it all the way to the Supreme Court the verdict came down unanimously. Film was the product of a business and therefore not protected under the First Amendment States and communities could legally banned films. This changed everything for the studios band. Movies meant no revenue. They had to change strategies in one thousand nine hundred sixteen five years before our buckle would be arrested for the murder of Virginia repay. The film industry formed a lobbying group to petition congress. They convene for years until March of nineteen twenty one and when just months before our buckle would become a murder suspect they issued their thirteen points promises to avoid specific offensive offensive content in exchange for legal protection studios were hopeful that these measures would protect sales and keep more conservative audiences. He's happy however they hadn't prepared for the effects of personal scandal six months after passing the thirteen points. Fatty arbuckle was arrested arrested for the murder of Virginia pay. The effects were devastating on the studios with over two hundred projects with his name on them.

William Opel's conducted the examination. He found that Virginia had a ruptured bladder which was likely the source of her swollen abdominal lining.

Oh call when a second doctor. Shelby strange came to complete a second autopsy. He had to get the organs from Opel's they had been put in jars. Doctor Strange noted this was odd but nevertheless reported similar results. The bladder was ruptured and the cause of death was peritonitis. Tonight is the medical term for swollen abdominal lining. He also recorded eleven bruises on her arms and thighs however his autopsy autopsied differed in one major way. He noted that spontaneously ruptured bladders are rare and that it was more likely lead that rupture was caused by external tearing. The tearing would've been external to the bladder but internal Virginia since they were no surface wounds. Ma Delmonte of course had an answer. Our buckle had violently raped Virginia rupturing her bladder. She contacted contacted the police with her story.

Saint Francis Hotel Hell in San Francisco however on Monday afternoon. Unexpected guess showed up at our buckles. Three suites and an impromptu party began young actress. Virginia repay was among the guests. Four days later our buckle was being held for her murder police hadn't even even had time to begin their investigations but before the weekend was over papers all over the country were weighing in on the story are buckle was the most famous actor in America and he just been arrested on murder charges. This was the story of the century which meant factual sexual or not. It would sell papers. This approach was known as yellow journalism and was characterized by short articles with questionable facts. Accent sensational headlines much like today's tabloids at the time. New York had fourteen major newspapers all competing for sales sales. If you wanted to stay in business you had to give your customers something. The other papers weren't selling even rumors as a result. Papers would pay top dollar two informants to get the latest scoop. The relatively new telegraph technology allowed informants from all over the country to send the information back to whatever paper was paying them because of the competition and good pay. Informants were often a step ahead if the police so much. So that in fact journalists tipped off our buckle hours before the police ever arrested him on murder suspicions he knew Louis was innocent and didn't skip town but when police arrived on his doorstep later that morning it was hardly a surprise. The papers were a rumor. Rumor Mill Gone Amok with facts and evidence pushed to the wayside. Almost immediately details were invented. An added to the story story. A particularly popular one was that our buckle shattered a bottle overpays abdomen which led to her. Bladder rupturing no source was ever given for the bottle detail but it was reprinted over and over. Sometimes the details changed for example papers. Disagreed disagreed on whether it was a coca cola or champagne bottle working class Americans. Eight the story up. It didn't matter that there was never any bottle bottle found in room.

As fact overnight are buckle became a scapegoat for everything. The American in public hated about the jazz age alcohol violence scandal and drugs part of the reason. This image of our buckles stuck may have been because it wasn't entirely fabricated. He like many Hollywood stars. Always had a stash of illegal liquor enjoyed partying. He was also a known drunk. However this wasn't all moral debauchery are buckle like many actors of the time had suffered an onset injury and was prescribed heroin for the pain? Heroin is cripplingly addictive in an attempt to mitigate negate this addiction and heroines adverse effects are buckle switch to liquor but was soon an alcoholic instead. His condition was was in no way helped by the party. centric lifestyle of most nineteen twenties entertainers are vocal had started his career. In Vaudeville. Stage shows shows around one thousand nine hundred ten. The hours were long. The pay was mediocre and the work was grueling parties. were away to blow off steam so the performers former could face the next grueling day and this culture carried over to the movies are buckle had transitioned to working on keystone cop comedy movies in the Early Nineteen.

He was one of the the world's first superstars which also meant he was one of the most scrutinized people on the planet. It also didn't help. That are buckle was physically large. He was tall and weighed close to three hundred pounds. Prejudice against over weight.

He discharged her recommending. She used simple hot compresses on her abdomen for the pain but Virginia did not get better for the next two days as three nurses attended to her sometime.
