This is the last of the WC Fields films where he had some sort of control, writing and acting,etc....1941
In this film Fields gets his wish to have a pretty talented young woman adore him: his niece played by a very talented singer of the era.
He plays THE GREAT MAN, that's his character's name. He plays a talented comedian who trys to sell his story to the studio, then has some fantastical adventures. I prefer the Bank Dick as his best film
Fields is more of a humorists than a comedian, he includes some slapstick, plenty of situational stuff and a few good belly laughs...usually at his characters expense. Skip this and see The Bank Dick, imho his best film and a great intro to his work...he was if nothing else a true character.. Godfry Daniels.
