Tho judge seeks all manner of meana to "frame up" Roscoe, but is foiled in the end. And, of course, the rotund lawyer wins the girl. - "Fatty" has merited his promotion from two to flve-reelers. There al-. ways was a certain human element in even the Arbuckle slapsticks that other products of the custard pie school lacked. Even in his most gro--tesque characterizations, Mr. Arbuck le has shown a keen insight into hu man nature and flashes of talent ss a straight dramatic actor. 1 Without slowing up in the least his fun-making powers, "The Life of the Party" offers tho heavyweight star an opportunity to broaden and de- , velop.
