A wonderful compilation of his best bits from his best films.
27 July 2000 | by (Anchorage, Alaska) – See all my reviews

If you are a W. C. Fields fan as I am, this compilation contains many of the parts we wait for when we watch his feature films. If you are new to his work, this will surely inspire you to see more of him by renting The Bank Dick, It's a Gift, or other classics excerpted here.

Even if you are familiar with Field's features, this documentary contains material you may not have seen, including clips from his silent films and from his early talkie shorts for Mack Sennett.

The interviews, including critic Leonard Maltin and Field's grandson/biographer, are informative without being intrusive. They add to the appreciation of what we are watching for - Fields in action.
