Used copy, intact dust jacket, some minor shelf wear.

First in vaudeville, then in silent films, the comic art of W. C. Fields was his unique abiltiy to combine a wildly antic imagination with masterful pantomine. With the coming of talkies, Fields added his own special brand of caustic dialogue, to reign for many years as a film star of the first rank. In the late 40's Fields became the idol of a handful of devoted addicts.

William Everson recaptures in detail all of Fields' movies from the earliest "Pool Sharks" to "Tillie's Punctured Romance," "David Cooperfield" The Bank Dick," "Never Give a Sucker an Even Break, " then the last "Sensations of 1945."
