Andrew Arbuckle

Actor. He was the brother of stage and film actor Maclyn Arbuckle and the cousin of comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle. A native of Galveston, Texas, he began his career in vaudeville before going to Hollywood and entering films. In 1915, he married Blanche Duquesne, with whom he had no children. His first roles upon his arrival in California included serials and shorts including “Graft” (1915),”The Red Circle” (1915), and “The Heart Breakers” in 1916. That same year he was discovered by producer Thomas H. Ince, and soon made his major debut in the 1916 film, “Little Mary Sunshine”, playing the role of Bob’s father. Although he had a striking resemblance to his cousin Roscoe, he never got the same kind of fame as his cousin, although he would go onto appear in more then 44 films and was considered one of the more prominent character actors of the silent era. Among Arbuckle’s other films are, ” The Girl That Didn’t Matter” (1916), “The Matrimonial Martyr” (1916), “A Lucky Leap” (1916), “Happiness” (1917), “Peggy Leads The Way” (1917), “Naughty, Naughty!” (1918), “Pinto” (1920), “The Light In The Cleaning” (1921), “Quincy Adams Sawyer” (1922), “The Spider And The Rose” (1923), “The Dangerous Coward” (1924), “The Clean Heart” (1924), “The Fighting Boob” (1926), “Hazardous Valley” (1927), “Jazz Mad” (1928), and “Ex-Rooster” (1932). In 1935, Arbuckle appeared in his last film, “The Dark Angel”, alongside Herbert Marshall, Merle Oberon, and Fredric March, as Mr. Gallup, but his role was uncredited. He retired form Hollywood soon after the release of the film. On September 21, 1939, Arbuckle died from a suspected heart attack. He was buried in unmarked grave at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
