Rent The Bank Dick on DVD

W.C. Fields Comedy Collection: The Bank Dick

1940 Rated NR 1hr 12m

One of W.C. Fields's best comedies features two of his greatest made-up names: Egbert Sousé, the henpecked husband (Fields) who foils a bank robbery and receives the position of bank detective as a reward, and Mahatma Kane Jeeves, the pen name Fields used for the original screen story. The climactic slapstick car chase is imitated in many later films. Fields's on-screen opponents include frequent dupe Grady Sutton and Stooge Shemp Howard.
