This review is from: The W.C. Fields Collection [DVD] (DVD)
I was on You Tube and suddenly remembered a clip I had seen on T.V of The Great W.C.Fields when I was young. I'd never seen any of his work before or since and I didn't know the name of the feature. So I typed W.C.Fields into You Tube and low and behold I found the clip, it was the "Honest John" scene in 'Six of a Kind'. I laughed until I cried at this clip, I immedietly wanted more, I started searching on Amazon and found this collection.
I was not dissapointed, it contains his greatest feature films, all of which are a joy, in particular, 'It's a Gift', 'The Bank Dick' and 'Man On The Flying Trapeze'. This set is beautifully presented, the films are eloquently remasted in picture and sound, and are hilarious from start to finish.
I am a huge fan of the early comedians even though I'm only 22 but among my favourites such as Laurel and Hardy, The Marx Brothers and Buster Keaton, W.C Fields is right up there with them, and so he should be. Fields was a creation unlike any other before and since.
