"Clive, thank you very much for your kind words. Wolves was really a wonderful research/writing experience for me and the response has been very gratifying. I think the most fun has been in introducing Roscoe to so many people who had no idea who he…"

"Thank you S. I am still getting the hang of this internet stuff so I am not sure what I doing quite yet. The Arbuckle story is one of those 'who would believe it happened this way' events in our history. I am still amazed by it.…"

Wolves at the Door: The Trials of Fatty Arbuckle

My new book is on the scandal involving the great comic and the death of actress Virginia Rappe. It was our first "trial of the century."

Dear Mr Kizer - I've been trying to track you down for some time and hope that this circuitous route will eventually get me to you!

I have so enjoyed reading your painstaking research on the Fatty Arbuckle trials, a subject that has long held a fascination for me. I felt your book got so close to the pain of the great man and exposed so brilliantly the unscrupulous behaviour of his aggressors, that I felt fully transported into the very court room itself.

Having read David Yallop’s account - indeed having spoken at length with him on the matter - and also Andy Edmonds, The Untold Story and several other versions of the trials, I found your book to be the one that moved me the most, as you wrote it from the heart rather than a cold list of facts.

Sadly a lot of people still believe Rosco to be a rapist and a murderer through Anger’s account in Hollywood Babylon and that is tragic. The man was a genius, a master of comedic inventiveness who influenced Chaplin and Keaton and so many other great comedians of the day.

I have an idea which has been brewing away inside of me for some time which I would like to discuss with you further.

Once again my congratulations on a terrific book and hope that I will be able to talk to you further on the subject.

All good wishes

Clive Francis
