Summary: From his early days on stage in vaudeville and Broadway through his live appearance on radio, W.C. Fields created an iconic persona that has never been matched. The comic genius of Fields is best captured forever in his body of films that highlight his notoriously sarcastic quick wit and slapstick routines. In these ten films, see W.C. Fields at his best.
