W.C. Fields in Astoria

Sunday, Nov 29, 2015

This year marks the centennial of W.C. Fields’s 1915 stage debut with the Ziegfeld Follies. To celebrate, the Museum will show two silent films made across the street at the Astoria studio, where Fields began his long partnership with Paramount Pictures.

Special thanks to Dr. Harriet Fields, W.C. Fields’s granddaughter.
