This ad looks like someone lobbed off Arbuckle's head and is tossing it out a car window...I don't know if anyone else found it disturbing...

If you look at the bottom banner left, the "W" in Warner Bros. is too close to the edge. It does look truncated.

It disturbs me knowing how Arbuckle was considered one of the greats in his day, then was totally disgraced. Even though the jury found him not guilty but also, supposedly, took the extraordinary step of exonerating him of all charges, Arbuckle was forever branded a hulking sex maniac in the eyes of a once-adoring public and died a broken man.
