W.C. Fields in SOs YOUR OLD MAN (1926) - Director's Pick
Sunday, July 12
4:00pm SO'S YOUR OLD MAN
Directed by Gregory La Cava (USA, 1926)
Cast: W.C. Fields, Alice Joyce, Charles Buddy Rogers

W.C. Fields rose to fame as a vaudeville juggler, but his movies forever established him as a duplicitous, bibulous, hilariously foul-spirited idler who'd steal candy from a baby.

In SO'S YOUR OLD MAN, Fields is a put-upon paterfamilias who triumphantly invents unbreakable windshield glass. But instead of acclaim, he shames his family until a princess comes to his rescue. This is a very rare screening from a comic master known mainly for his work in the talking cinema, specially picked by director Terry Zwigoff who will introduce the film. (The film was recently inducted into The Library of Congress National Registry!)

Preceded by short THEIR FIRST DIVORCE CASE (Mack Sennett, 1911)

LIVE ACCOMPANIMENT BYPHILIP CARLION PIANO.

35mm print from Library of Congress. Feature runs approximately 73 minutes.
