The Bank Dick (1940) NR

This W.C. Fields classic has the star in all of his glory, as a brash, boorish man who seems to have little to no social graces, but finds himself in a once in a lifetime situation and makes the most of his big break. This is politically incorrect humor decades before the term even existed, as Fields plays on all kinds of social conventions and shows no mercy when it comes to skewering its targets. The movie blends razor sharp, fearless verbal banter with outlandish, sometimes scary physical humor, to deliver one of Fields' most hilarious feature films. We will also be showing a couple of Fields' classic short films after The Bank Dick, for those who would like to see more of the comic master at work.
