W.C. Fields Celebration at the National Arts Club, June 27, 2018.
On the first anniversary of the profound Celebration of Comic Genius W.C. Fields at the National Arts Club, Gramercy Park, New York City, we are happy to share the videography. Guests said it was the “best ever....most well attended event” at the historic arts venue whose mission is to provide arts programs to the public.
Created and organized by Dr. Harriet Fields, granddaughter, with panelists Dick Cavett and Prof. Rob King of Columbia University Film Department, Harriet chose some of her favorite film clips, that to her portray the “sweetness and gentleness” of her grandfather. Introducing the program saying these are portraits of love so needed in the world today—W.C. Fields to the audience and the audience back again to the artist, quoting her grandfather “If I can make them laugh and through that laughter make this old world seem just a little brighter, then I am satisfied”.
