Plus Buster Keaton in COPS
(1940, Edward Cline) After accidentally foiling a robbery, W.C. Fields’ Edgar Souse (pronounced “soo-ZAY”) becomes a local hero – but not to contemptuous daughter Una Merkel and her simpering beau Grady Sutton. Plus: Monstrous hordes of Cops (1922) pursue Buster after he’s mistaken for an anarchist. Approx. 90 min. DCP & 35mm.
“Fields’ talents were never so resplendently on display.”
– David Shipman
“TOTALLY RAMSHACKLE AND MARVELOUS! By far the best of Fields' last comedies, with the great man trundling through an impeccably loony scenario of his own devising.”
– Geoff Brown, Time Out (London)
