Bank Dick (1940)

Bank Dick (1940)

Egbert Souse (W.C. Fields), "Pronounced as "Soosay", henpecked by his whole family, is recruited to replace a drunken film director, then seems to have captured a bank robber and is hired as guard in the Lompoc Bank, where Og Oggilby, his daughter's fiancée, is teller. Souse persuades Og to embezzle $500 to buy phony stock; then the bank examiner shows up. Can Souse keep him occupied for four days? The climax is an extended chase sequence. W.C. Fields uses his expert timing and his large collection of gags to make "The Bank Dick" a classic comedy that gets even better as it goes along. The amusing, tangled plot gives Fields plenty of material to work with, and the other characters also pitch in to keep you smiling. I recommend.

  • This is the closest we've gotten to Neil Patrick Harris: The Musical and America is far better for it. If you haven't had a chance to experience the magic that is Dr. Horrible, I urge you to visit the Sing-Along Blog.

  • This is North America's first Interactive Feature film, and also the worlds' first English language Interactive feature, as far as I know, so it's pretty special.
