There is no instance in the human condition we cannot find some solace in the humor of W.C. Fields.
W.C. Fields speaks truth to authority with dignity, respect, and kindness. He fights for the underdog, the common person. Bottom line, W.C. Fields made and makes the world laugh—the best medicine of all.
Happy Birthday to our Grandfather, the world's icon of honesty through humor. January 29, 2017 is the 137th anniversary of the birth of William Claude Dukenfield - W.C. Fields - (January 29, 1880—December 25, 1946). On the occasion of his 100th birthday, the U.S. Postal Service issued their iconic first-class W.C. Fields Commemorative United States Postage Stamp with a ceremony at the Academy Awards Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. Thank you to our grandfather, W.C. Fields, for the gift and joy of laughter he has shared with the world, for he truly brings generations together. The Great Man lives! Here are a few additional family photos.
