SCREENING

It’s the Old Army Game

Ongoing

With Dr. Harriet Fields, granddaughter of W.C. Fields in person 

Live music by Donald Sosin

Dir. A. Edward Sutherland. 1926. 70 min., 35mm print from the Library of Congress. With W.C. Fields, Louise Brooks. Fields plays a misanthropic, small-town pharmacist whose lovely shop assistant (Louise Brooks) gets him involved in a phony real estate scheme. The film is regarded as a high point of Fields’s silent filmography. The story was later revised and revamped in the talkies The Pharmacist (1933) and It’s a Gift (1934). Dr. Harriet Fields, granddaughter of W.C. Fields, will introduce the film and do a Q&A after the screening.
