W.C. Fields

1879- 1946

Actor

From vaudeville to films, William Claude Fields (originally Dukenfield) held a special place in the annals of American entertainment. Known for his stage persona of the cynical, hard-drinking misanthrope, Fields' image still evokes smiles of recognition.

Some of his best-remembered films include You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (1939) and My Little Chickadee (1940, with Mae West).
