Fields (1880-1946, born William Claude Dukenfield in Darby, Pennsylvania) began his film career in silent films. He later excelled in such films as David Copperfield (1935) as Micawber, My Little Chickadee (1940) with Mae West and The Bank Dick (1940). The vaudeville veteran, who appeared in every version of the Ziegfeld Follies from 1915 to 1921, made his last film, Sensations of 1945, in 1944. Fields was also a regular performer on Charlie McCarthy's radio shows. Lightly toned and creased. Normal bank stamps and cancellation holes, none of which touch signature or endorsement on verso.
