Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Crazy to Marry was one of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's most delightful feature-length vehicles. Arbuckle plays a doctor who hopes to cure criminals via brain surgery. In one hilarious sequence, Fatty surgically recovers several valuables-watches, gems etc.-from the abdomen of plug-ugly Bull Montana. A film that has evidently vanished from the earth (though rumors of a extant European print resurface from time to time), Crazy to Marry represented the last Arbuckle silent film to be released before outbreak of the scandal that ruined his career. It was also the third collaboration between Fatty and director James Cruze (they'd planned a fourth, One Glorious Day, which had to be refashioned as a Will Rogers picture).
