The Bank Dick

Eddie Cline's 1940 comedy The Bank Dick, written by and starring W.C. Fields, has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and I will never ever understand that. I'm ruling out Cultural Dissonance  -- I'm a fan of other comedies and comedians of the era and even of Fields' shorts which we discuss next week -- I'm just not a fan of this movie except for one great scene, which is fortunately a car chase that takes up most of the last act.
