Long before the Tony Award winning The Book of Mormon, there was The Mormon’s Prayers on Broadway. Never before in the history of Broadway did a star’s name appear above the producer’s. But in 1928, on the marquee W.C. Fields' name appeared above Earl Carroll’s Vanities.
W.C. Fields respected the works of Charles Dickens so much that he did not change or ad lib any words in The Personal History, Adventures, Experience, & Observation of David Copperfield the Younger (1935).
Beefsteak Mine from The Bank Dick (1940).
The Ping Pong Match from You Can’t Cheat An Honest Man (1939).
The Sheriff Tends Bar from My Little Chickadee (1940).
Mr. Muckle from It's a Gift (1934).
Out on the Porch from It's a Gift (1934).
The Cigar Box Fiddle from Poppy (1936).
Honest John from Six of a Kind (1934).
