W. C. FIELDS
He pays $2,373.40 for two life insurance policies.
Check signed: "W. C. Fields", 8¼x3. New York, N.Y., 1932 October 25. Check #49, drawn on The Harriman National Bank and Trust Co., payable to Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company for $2,373.40. Filled out in another hand and signed by Fields. Memo identifies two policy numbers. Red-nosed, gravel-voiced, bottle-hitting American comedian W.C. Fields (1880-1946), born William Claude Dukenfield, began entertaining as an amusement park juggler at the age of fourteen. He was a vaudeville headliner before he was twenty and toured Europe in 1901, giving a command performance at Buckingham Palace. His Broadway debut in The Ham Tree (1905) was followed by appearances in the Ziegfeld Follies (1915-1921) and in George White's Scandals (1922). Fields then starred in Poppy on Broadway (1923) and the next year made his first film, Janice Meredith (1924). He later excelled in such films as David Copperfield (as Micawber), My Little Chickadee (with Mae West) and The Bank Dick. He made his last film, Sensations of 1945, in 1944. Nobody contributed more wry quotations ("Anyone who hates children and animals can't be all bad.") to American folklore. Bank processing stamps and cancellation holes on front and verso. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition. .
