With James Curtis
Date: Wednesday 19 January 2022
W C Fields’ career spanned the whole of the 20th Century—burlesque, vaudeville, the legitimate stage, silent pictures, talkies, radio, books, and recordings.
He made some of the great enduring comedies of all time, including “It’s a Gift”, “My Little Chickadee”, and “The Bank Dick”.
James Curtis – author of the definitive biography W C Fields – joins Slapstick live online to talk about the great man and his work and show some clips of his work.
