Sale Price $1,020.00
Check filled out and signed by the legendary comedian in 1925.
Check filled out and signed: "W.C. Fields", 6½x2¾. New York City, 1925 September 19. Not numbered. Drawn on the Harriman National Bank, payable to "Cash" for $300. Endorsed on verso: "Linelle Blackburn". In 1925, Fields appeared in two films, Sally of the Sawdust and That Royle Girl. Red-nosed, gravel-voiced, bottle-hitting American comedian W.C. Fields (1880-1946), born William Claude Dukenfield, began his film career in silents. He later excelled in such films as David Copperfield (as Micawber), My Little Chickadee (with Mae West) and The Bank Dick. 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. Nobody contributed more wry quotations (such as "Anyone who hates children and animals can't be all bad.") to American folklore. Slightly creased, light vertical crease between the "C" and the "F" of Fields. Bank cancellation holes and stamp at two lines of writing and just nicking the "W". Fine condition.
