This hilarious comedy, W. C. Fields stars as Samuel Bisbee, a small-town inventor and local embarrassment who is convinced that his invention of an unbreakable car windshield will set him up for life. After an innocent encounter on a train is misconstrued as a romantic liaison, the community and his wife turn against him. Filmed at Astoria Studios, and in nearby LI towns, this is one of Field’s best surviving silent features, confirming that Fields could be a star comedian even without his unique voice. (1926, 67 mins)
