W C Fields and Me
11 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Glad to see like minded people reviewing this movie. Although it has been years and years since I first saw it, it left a lasting impression. I can't really say why, other than I am a Steiger fan, but I do believe he brought something new to what I know of the character W C Fields.

I too would, like my fellow fans, like to see this distributed on DVD. The film has been a topic of discussion with work colleagues, and even though I have said that it wasn't the 'greatest' of productions, it was definitely worth seeing.

If the big wigs are reading, please, give me back a bit of my youth, lets have this on DVD!
