Everyone seems to know the story of W.C. Fields, the curmudgeon of classic film comedy--his Dickensian childhood in Philadelphia, the numerous bank accounts he opened around the world under outlandish names, and so on. All entertaining--and all completely untrue. This highly readable biography is the first to disentangle the facts from the pack of lies and myths mischievously nurtured by Fields himself, telling the real story of an artist whose finest creation was himself.
