| Wayne And Shuster Take An Affectionate Look At W.C. Fields (TV) (Norman Campbell, 1966) ***
Included as a supplement on Universal's 5-Disc Set THE W.C. FIELDS COMEDY COLLECTION VOL. 2, this was an episode from a series of TV shows in which comedians Johnny Wayne(!!) and Frank Shuster paid tribute to comic giants of the past. Basically, it's a collection of classic scenes from some of Fields' pictures - with the occasional interpolation from the hosts related to Fields' biography (unhappy childhood, Ziegfeld Follies performer, etc.) which, essentially, influenced him in the creation of his unique on-screen characterizations. While the show included choice sequences from films that are included in both this and the previous set, I was especially grateful for the inclusion of scenes from two Fields titles which have so far eluded me - the compendium film IF I HAD A MILLION (1932) and MISSISSIPPI (1935). Ultimately, this isn't exactly an in-depth look at Fields' M.O. but the comedy sketches themselves are certainly hilarious.
