It's barely controlled lunacy throughout, of course, but considerable good fun.

This 1940 film seems to spring straight from his cranky, beleaguered, convoluted personality, with no concessions made to film form, audience enjoyment, or common sense, and still it's very funny in a desultory, strangely private kind of way.

For anyone who simply likes to laugh at the reckless manities of an inspired buffoon, we recommend The Bank Dick. It's great fun.

It's still great, exhibiting a far superior sense of wit and comic timing than virtually any film released in the last twenty years.

Wacky hijinks ensue, with some of the best one-liners in Fields' career herein. Excellent.

Fields' favourite running jokes are all here -- the drink, hatred of children, and preference for time in the bar to pretty much anything else.

The Bank Dick (1940) is an all-time classic comedy starring W. C. Fields - one of his very best and funniest films, and his last major film role

No screen comic benefited from the coming of sound film more than W.C. Fields.
