5.0 su 5 stelle All The Material Fields Himself Would Have Used 27 ottobre 2014
Di Richard The Buying Hearted - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Before you feel cheated when you get it, remember that this material gathered here with great insight and love by his grandson was actually stored away in trunks by the great man himself who was meticulous about documenting his own career from the very beginning. It is a treasure trove of memorabilia and letters and thoughts from Fields himself. It is not an Autobiography in the strictest sense of the word, but perhaps better because it gives you the unadulterated material the great man would have used himself to write one.

I always recommend this book and 'The Man On The Flying Trapeze' by Simon Louvish as the definitive duo in giving you a clear look at the man. Mr. Louvish took great care in his research knowing that Fields himself knew how to spin a tale to his advantage throughout his career and sorts fact from fiction.

I highly recommend both. One for giving Fields his own voice on the matter and the other for doing the best possible job of sorting fact from fiction.

2.0 su 5 stelle Not worth effort to publish sad to say 21 ottobre 2012
Di Camille - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book appears to me to be an effort to publish info not worth publishing working off the great name of the enigma that was W.C. Fields. Very thin in content and disappointing.

2.0 su 5 stelle A BUPKE... 7 febbraio 2010
Di Jeff Woodman - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book was a real disappointment. The vaudeville and "Follies" sketches reproduced here do not translate, as they were meant to be seen, not read. Ditto the endless treatments for proposed films. The radio scripts fare best, as they were written in dialogue form without stage directions, and if one has any familiarity with Fields and Edgar Bergen/Charlie McCarthy it's easy to imagine them giving voice to the material.

The correspondence is of some interest, though the first letters section (1880 - 1929) seems to be composed primarily of responses to his wife's constant requests for money, which quickly become tedious.

None of this material was created for an "intended autobiography," it's just a bunch of debris found in a basement and capitalized upon by Fields' heirs. Aside from being addressed by him in letters, Fields' contemporaries (Will Rogers, Florenz Ziegfeld, Eddie Cantor, Gregory Lacava, Jack Benny, John Barrymore) are all noticeably absent.

Field's companion/mistress for the last 14 years of his life, Carlotta Monti, is given particularly short shrift here. Her book, W.C. Fields and Me, BTW, while padded, is far superior to this effort, and paints a far more vivid portrait of Fields. (And I use the word effort loosely, as very little of it seems to have gone into assembling this mess.)
