W.C. Fields in
THE BANK DICK
In Person: Dr. Harriet Fields, W.C. Fields' only granddaughter and global health activist
Tuesday, November 22 at 7:30 pm | Members $10 | Public $15| Includes Reception
Join Dr. Harriet Fields, the only granddaughter of the great stage and screen comedian W.C. Fields, for a celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Great Man’s passing with a special screening of one of his funniest films.
W.C. Fields’ most enduringly popular feature casts him as Egbert Sousé, a layabout who inadvertently catches a bank robber and is “rewarded” with a job as the bank’s security guard. A matchless cast, including Una Merkel, Jessie Ralph, Grady Sutton, Franklin Pangborn, Jack Norton and the one and only Shemp Howard, helps make this an authentic American classic. Written by “Mahatma Kane Jeeves” (as in, “My hat, my cane, Jeeves,” AKA, W.C. Fields). (USA, 1940, 72min., b/w, DCP | Dir. Edward F. Cline)
