POST-GAZETrE, JANUARY 13, 2017 PAGE 11 Thoughts by Dan (Continued from Page 9) the commission of a crime. He was manly throughout the case and told a straightforward story on the witness stand, which we all believed. The happening at the hotel was an unfortunate affair for which Arbuckle, so the evidence shows, was in no way responsible We wish him suc- cess and hope that the American people will take the judgment of fourteen men and woman who have sat listening for thirty-one days to evidence, that Roscoe Arbuckle is entirely innocent and free from all blame." Although Arbuckle was ac- quitted his troubles were far from over The trials had drained him financially and his wife had divorced him. But the real damage was done by the media, mainly William Randolph Hearst who used the scandal as fuel for his papers and pushed a dark and sinister image of Arbuckle to raise the ire of the public. Hearst knew what some of us are only beginning to learn about media, and his yellow journalism worked. Arbuckle's films were banned and prints were ordered destroyed by many exhibitors. The only support Arbuckle got was from his co-stars. From the start, Chaplin said he could not believe Arbuckle was capable of harming anyone and Keaton, his closest professional friend, supported him both financially and morally. However, this likely added to the bigger pic- ture the papers were creating of Hollywood as a land of sin and unsavory sorts. Other scandal- ous trials, such as the murder of William Desmond Taylor and the mysterious death of Thomas H. Ince were used as evidence. To protect their image, Hol- lywood studios began to police their stars and William Hays, the head of the Motion Pictures Producers and Distributors of America, officially blacklisted Arbuckle from film work in April of 1922. The ban was lifted that December, but Arbuckle was still treated as a pariah and studios continued to deny him work. He was only able to find work behind the camera thanks to pal Buster Keaton, who of- fered him a chance to direct some of his films under the pseudonym of William Goodrich. With the advent of talking pictures, things began to look hopeful for Fatty Arbuclde once ~again. In 1932, he signed a contract with Warner Brothers to star in a number of comedy shorts. The first of these was Hey, Pop! In all, he made six sound films before his death on June 28, 1933, of a heart-attack at the age of 46. Fatty Arbuckle's place in the annals of film comedy is secure. He was among the first char- acter comedians and few who see his films today can deny his talent. Perhaps the two greatest con'tic legends, Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, developed their careers alongside Fatty At- buckle. That should have been all that Arbuckle was remem- bered for, but for the press that made him a criminal where no crime was committed.

The only time growing up I could see great players like Warren Spahn, Hank Aaron, and Eddie Matthews LIVE was at those every other year's exhibition Jimmy Fund Games between the two teams. I was thinking about all these players recently when I read an obituary for Tommie Ferguson, who was the bat boy back in 1948 when the Braves won the NL pennant, but lost the series to the Indians. Which, by the way, is now the longest losing streak of any current team winning a World Series title, but I digress.

Ferguson was one of the last living links to the old Boston Braves, and in 1948 was the envy of his Brookiine High classmates when he was awarded an NL championship ring. In 1988, the 40~h Anniversary of the Boston Braves American League Championship, Ferguson organized a reunion of the 1948 team and donated his uniform to the Sports Museum. When the team left Boston, Ferguson was resigned to a new Boston baseball reality. In a 1953 letter, he stated, "I am sure it will be hard to face all those Red Sox fans when I come home. I sure wish the Braves all the luck in the world." Mike Pagliarulo Now Marlins Hitting Coach Mick Pagliarulo, who grew up in Medford a big Red Sox fan, made it to the Majors, playing first with the Pirates, then ending up with the Yankees. Now, he has replaced Barry Bonds as hitting coach for the Marlins after getting picked up by Manager Don Mattingly, his old teammate during those Yankee days. Happy Birthdays to ...
