File 71: The Fatty Arbuckle Scandal and The Murder of Fred Oesterreich

File 71: The Fatty Arbuckle Scandal and The Murder of Fred Oesterreich

Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle was an accomplished silent film actor, director, and screenwriter when a scandal involving the death of an up-and-coming movie starlet derailed his career in 1921. 
Just a year later, the murder of wealthy textile manufacturer, Fred Oesterreich exposed a bizarre love affair between his wife and a man dubbed The Bat Man. 
This week we cover two cases linked to Old Hollywood.
