"W.C. Fields and Me" (1978) DVD Rod Steiger, Valerie Perrine Outstanding!
Rod Steiger is absolutely uncanny as the great comedian, writer and vaudevillian W.C. Fields in this film loosely based upon the memoirs of his long time mistress Carlotta Monti, beautifully and sensitively played by Valerie Perrine. This memoir is at turns hysterical and heart-breaking as it traces Fields' career from his days on the vaudeville circuit with Florenz Ziegfeld, through the loss of his fortune thanks to an unscrupulous agent, to his re-emergence as a major film star and screenwriter with pals such as John Barrymore (an hysterical turn by Jack Cassidy). He drives to California almost on a whim with his German little person buddy Ludwig (Billy Barty) with little more than dreams, and it's in California, once an established film star, when he first meets Carlotta, who is trying desperately to make it as an actress. Their first encounter is rocky to say the least as Carlotta (whom he calls "chinaman" throughout their lengthy relationship for reasons I won't spill here)is invited out to Fields mansion presumably to try out for a part but who ends up being ignored all day and is only called upon to make a Spanish omelette for Fields and his drunken pals. Their relationship proceeds through many years, until Fields' death from multiple abuses to his system. I promise you, the closing scenes will make you cry, with Fields, unable to sleep in the hospital, wishes for rain so he can try.

The region-free(playable worldwide) DVD comes to you in a slim DVD case with artwork shown.

PLEASE NOTE: Because I burn these DVDs on an as-ordered basis, you may experience a shipping delay of a day or possibly two, but I try to avoid this if time permits!

International (outside U.S.)orders are always welcome, and I used to send these Priority Mail for an additional fee, however as postal rates at my end have skyrocketed of late making that option unaffordable I can only offer First Class "small packet" service, which frankly has its risks, the biggest of which is the lack of tracking available, so PLEASE BE SURE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS IS COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PRIOR TO ORDERING in order to minimize the chance of non-delivery as these items are not returned to me if they cannot be delivered for any reason.

I accept personal or cashiers checks and money orders from U.S. buyers and PayPal from everyone in the whole wide world.

Thanks for looking and please feel free to message me with any questions.
