Arnold the Geek



Quite some time ago Roscoe asked me to post an Arnold the Geek story. (Did I ever tell you that my father worked for Roscoe (Fatty) Arbuckle during the silent picture days?) Here is the first appearance of Arnlod the Geek. It’s from November 1989.

    This is a contest, isn’t it?

    My mothers aunt, washed Greta Gustafsson/Garbos mended cloth when Ms Garbo visited my aunts employer’s summer house.
    And later she was a cook in family Hammarskjöld when Dag Hammarskjöld was a kid.

      I knew President Eisenhower’s social secretary. Her name was Ilene. Forget the last name. She started working for him during the war. She was in her mid eighties when I met her, but you could tell that she had been an exqisitely beautiful woman in her youth. The reason that I mention it is because during the war she roomed with Gretta Garbo.

    I love silent movies! What did your father do when he worked for Arbuckle? What years did he work for him? Florida also had its share of silent movie making.
