This 1921 comedy, filmed at the height of Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle’s career, was completed just days before the scandal that ruined his career. This film was never released in this country and has only surfaced in film festivals in recent years.
Leap Year, (1921) was the last film Roscoe Arbuckle completed before the scandal that ended his on-screen career. He was accused of the rape and murder of actress Virginia Rappe. Although he was later cleared of all charges, the film companies were reluctant to give him any major roles. Ironically, this story’s plotline involves a young man (Arbuckle), heir to his misogynistic and millionaire uncle, and in love with a nurse, who gets in trouble when he gives advice on marriage to his girlfriends.

Jeremiah Piper (Lucien Littlefield) is a grumpy millionaire with a fool for a nephew, young Stanley Piper (Arbuckle), a fellow who falls in love with every girl in sight. As the guardian of a large fortune that will fall to Stanley some day, Jeremiah is determined to keep his bumbling nephew away from the kind of women whose pulse quickens at the sight of a rich man.
