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."

Nice to meet you David. You’ve come to a good place to meet other authors. :) Welcome aboard. I’ll look forward to learning more about you and your new book. I remember vaguely reading about that case long ago.

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
