Screwball Comedies
Double Feature!
THE BANK DICK / POPPY
THE BANK DICK
1940, Universal, 72 min, Dir: Eddie Cline

W.C. Fields’ most enduringly popular feature casts him as Egbert Sousé, a layabout who inadvertently catches a bank robber and is "rewarded" with a job as the bank’s security guard. A matchless cast, including Una Merkel, Jessie Ralph, Grady Sutton, Franklin Pangborn, Jack Norton and the one and only Shemp Howard, helps make this an authentic American classic. Written by "Mahatma Kane Jeeves" (as in, "My hat, my cane, Jeeves").


POPPY
1936, Universal, 73 min, Dir: A. Edward Sutherland

Snake-oil salesman Eustace McGargle (the riotous W.C. Fields) is a con artist who must always stay two steps ahead of the local sheriff, which is particularly difficult given Eustace's undying devotion to his daughter, Poppy (Rochelle Hudson).
