Leap Year is an American silent comedy film directed by and starring Roscoe Arbuckle. Though produced in 1921, the film was not released in the United States due to Arbuckle's involvement in the Virginia Rappe death scandal; it received its first release in Finland in 1924. The film finally saw an American release of sorts in 1981.[1] Prints held by the UCLA Film and Television Archive and Library of Congress.[2][3]
