Only W.C Fields can do this type of comedies

Funny and chaotic, this short exercises some of the more rewarding Fields techniques and the result is sheer entertainment. The recurring routine of the up-and-down stairs that Fields uses again here is one I find hysterical- as he mixes his time between his nagging customers downstairs and his distant family upstairs his antics gets more and more fun to watch. The ending is noteworthy as well- a nonsensical (and pesky) shootout within the store which makes it difficult for W.C. to finish a phone call.

This film isn't exactly hilarious, but W.C. Fields' "The Pharmacist" is entertaining. All of the trademarks of Fields are here, just in a different setting. Unfortunately I don't have much more to say. If you're a fan of Fields' comedy, see it. If not, don't.

another slightly disappointing product of wc fields, a man who, when he was funny was really funny, but when he wasnt....he bores you to tears. watch chaplin or keaton instead. maybe even some harold lloyd.
