A biography of W C Fields that I don't believe half of, but don't really care. Reading this is like watching a W C Fields movie -- one great scene after another, every tale told with the flourishes that made Fields so iconic. Except for one short section that spends too much time reprinting reviews of his early burlesque shows, Follies and Fortunes flows smoothly through what must have been 100's of hours of interviews with those who knew Fields.
Review: WC Fields: His Follies and FortunesUser Review - Goodreads
Worth reading only because I was curious about him personally. It worked for me but I came out of it not believing a lot of what was written due to his general dishonesty.
Fields in one of his greatest roles as Micawber in David
The young vaudeville star on tour in Australia in 1903
John Barrymore and his close friend Fields the mighty lover
