One of the All Time Greats!

W.C. Fields made many of his best films at Universal, while in his Sixties! The Bank Dick (1940) works on many levels. It has great dialogue, slapstick and a very sarcastic look at authority. This wonderful Lobby Card features W.C. as Egbert Sousè and Franklin Pangborn as J. Pinkerton Snoopington It has my highest recommendation.

I get the feeling I'd find this funny for all the wrong reasons...

I just saw this and it was brilliant. Full of clever lines and meanings.
W.C. Says to his future son in law: Don't be a moon pie, don't be a slack jaw..." as the son-in-law stands there with a blank look on his face. LOL
Thanks Vince
