Celebrating the Centennial of W.C. Fields’ Movie Debut

(1925) Sideshow “Professor” Eustace McGargle and ward Carole Dempster (Griffith’s real-life lover/protégée) leave the carny to pursue respectability, but it’s hard to quit swindling those suckers. Based on Fields’ stage hit Poppy, with stage legend Alfred Lunt in rare film role; remade in 1936.

Extra added attraction! Fields re-creates his vaudeville act in Pool Sharks (1915), his movie debut.

Total program approx. 111 min. Both 35mm.
