W.C Fields

W.C. Fields- (not one I have currently seen much of myself)

He's got a big nose, nasally voice (kinda looks like a mobster)

In Film- mean, dishonest, hates kids, heavy drinker.

Fields is the one with the flat hat and who swallows his smokes going down the stairs. I love how he bops the little girl on the head…

IN real life, he was mean, dishonest, hated kids and drank himself to death at age 50.

*Before he was into movies, he was a world famous juggler.*

(the juggling gets more interesting towards the end)

Some of the full length movies you can find him in are "You Can't Cheat an Honest Man" and "My Little Chickadee" (With Mae West.)
