PRE-ORDER YOUR LIMITED EDITION FIRST PRESSING TODAY:
SHIPPING DATE: APRIL 1st, 2018

CineMuseum Archival Edition
Blu-Ray / DVD Combo-Pack

Silent screen legend Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, master of short subject comedies, made his debut as the star of feature length films in George Melford’s production of THE ROUND UP (1920). In this action-packed drama, Arbuckle portrays Sheriff Slim Hoover, a “legitimate” role which not only offers a perfect vehicle for Arbuckle’s clever brand of humor, but also reveals him to be a dramatic actor of the first order! This first class western has everything, including silent film mega-star Buster Keaton in an uncredited cameo as an Apache Indian!

Synopsis: After Dick Lane (Irving Cummings) disappears during a prospecting trip, his fiancé Echo Allen (Mabel Julienne Scott) agrees to marry Dick’s friend Jack Payson (Tom Forman) who is harboring a secret about his fallen pal. When “half-breed” Buck McKee (Wallace Beery), a rival for Echo’s affections, robs the express office and points the blame at Jack, it is up to jovial Sheriff Slim Hoover (Roscoe Arbuckle) to solve the crime.

Pulled from distribution in 1921, this historic film has been unavailable to the general public for over 95 years – until now.

Good news... Too bad I live on the wrong side of the pound. Oh well. I hope it sells like hotcakes, of course!

By the way, does this serve as the long-anticipated Arbuckle Anthology, or is it a teaser of sorts? Just curious.

Teaser, Smari. Included in this DVD / BD set is a discount coupon for $5.00 off the Arbuckle Anthology -- which is also on the way!

I just pre-ordered mine. Really looking forward to the Arbuckle Anthology as well, which I'll definitely buy. Will be great to see another Arbuckle feature, as LEAP YEAR is all I've seen.

Okay, so if The Round-Up is going to be included in the forthcoming anthology, why would I pay big money to get it separately now? I can be patient. (Sometimes. Depends on a lot of factors.)

Ordered and can't wait for all three box sets in the pipeline. Industrial Strength Keaton is underappreciated and I am all over a second dip. So glad Buster kept working.

Oh! Shazzaam! That's what I've been waiting for!

They also list in production Mack Sennett Vol 2. I'm confused -- wasn't that through Flicker Alley?

Agreed, all three sets sound like a slam-dunk. So glad we're getting another Sennett. I was just wondering about that the other day - if we'd ever see a Vol 2.

I asked that question and he said that the extras wouldn't be included in the big set, so I guess that means the two additional shorts. He said that whenever there was double dipping, he would always include significant content in the single that you don't get in the set.

How is it that I cannot buy it outside EEUU and Canada? I live in Spain. Is it going to me commecialized by someone else? Why that absurd restriction? There are silent comedy fans all over the world. I participated from here in each of Ben Model's DVDs. Why cannot I buy a legitimate product????????? Can someone please explain it?

Someone asked that on Facebook too, and he said that shipping overseas is just too expensive.

I agree it's a bit of a letdown to us Europeans, but the Arbuckle Anthology will in all likelihood be made available internationally, and hopefully that release is not that far away now. Crossing my fingers!

Sorry for the delay responding, folks. Yes, CineMuseum is only shipping to the US and Canada while it works on a solution to combat the extreme overseas shipping prices. Seriously, the cost to mail the set out of the country is more than that of the set itself. That said, I expect that there will be an alternate solution shortly. Until then, everyone here appreciates your kind patience and understanding.

I am told that THE ROUND-UP is now available for pre-order worldwide -- or at least everywhere that USPS delivers.

Any estimate on the timing of the Anthology set? Also, how many discs do you suppose it will turn out to be? Three, four discs? I'm trying to figure out how much I need to save.

Good questions all, Red. Unfortunately CineMuseum is not quite ready to share those details yet. Please keep an eye on the new website, and updates will surely be posted here too.

If it's anything like "The Forgotten Film of Roscoe Fatty Arbuckle" DVD set you did years back, I'll be happy. The directorial efforts were a nice touch too. I'm bizarre enough to appreciate "Bridge Wives." :D
