      Pre-dating Roach, Arbuckle and Keaton made their final short comedies The Hayseed () and The Garage () at the Lehrman Studio facilities in Culver City before the Roach Studio was even built. So when Roscoe and Buster needed street corners and intersections, they too filmed at these streets in Culver City and Palms. It's Arbuckle and Keaton and St. John, so I can't give it the lowest rating, but it's pretty bad. It's a classic example of how to waste the talents of 3 fine comedians: give them a chaotic story line that goes nowhere, turn Buster Keaton into a cynical killer who spends most of his screen time sitting around working objects instead of moving, and base the script on parody instead of original.

    The Butcher Boy Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton (1º movie!!!) IMDB: This Fatty Arbuckle short feature is a historical treasure in that it was the first film appearance of the great Buster Keaton, and it has some decent slapstick too. Arbuckle and Keaton Volumes One and Two from Kino contain ten of the surviving films, including two, Rough House and Back Stage, which appear here for the first time on home video.
