Booze News: W.C. Fields Week Part Deux

>> Monday, March 19, 2007

Salutations and hearty handclasps all around! The W.C. Fields Comedy Collection: Vol. 2 hits store shelves tomorrow, featuring five firewater-fueled comedies from the Great Man:

* You're Telling Me (1934 Paramount)

* The Old Fashioned Way (1934 Paramount)

* The Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935 Paramount)

* Poppy (1936 Paramount)

* Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941 Universal)

These features represent some of the crown jewels of soused cinema, so if you don't already have this set on order, pick it up tomorrow. Let's give Universal a reason to release a Volume 3 box!

I'll begin posting reviews of these films later in the week. In the meantime, check out this article from Dave Kehr of the New York Times in which he discusses the DVD set and compares the Great Man's work to that of Japanese master Yasujiro Ozu-->Link

I like to drink. I like to watch movies. I like to watch movies about drinking. I like to write about the movies I’ve watched, but only if I’ve had a drink first.
