Scarce and terrific vintage 8x10-inch sepia-tone portrait, boldly inscribed along his cane and signed across his pocket handkerchief in the 1930s. In good condition for its age. With his flowery, pompous quips; hoarse voice; and red, battered nose, beloved vaudevillian juggler-turned-comic film actor W.C. Fields was the quintessential beleaguered everyman, attacked from all sides by nagging wives, bratty children, noisy neighbors, and pesky strangers. Highlights of his far-too-brief film career include Alice in Wonderland (1933), The Old-Fashioned Way (1934), You're Telling Me! (1934), It's a Gift (1934), David Copperfield (1935), Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935), Poppy (1936), You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939)My Little Chickadee (1940), The Bank Dick (1940), and Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941).
