At the Bull Pup Café, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle is chef of all trades and Buster Keaton waits tables in his own inimitable fashion. When a rambunctious customer annoys the pretty cashier, Keaton comes to her defense and all-out mayhem ensues. Arbuckle and Keaton’s dance à la Salome and Cleopatra is a highlight of the dining experience, and they are ably assisted by Luke the Dog who steals the show as the feisty canine defender of womanhood. Long considered one of cinema’s holy grails, The Cook was discovered in 1998 among a cache of unidentified nitrate prints at the Norsk Filminstitutt. Then in 2002, additional footage was discovered by the staff at the EYE Film Institute in Amsterdam! This edition combines the sources to aproximate the original US release and proves The Cook to be one of the finest and funniest of the Arbuckle and Keaton collaborations.
