Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941) W.C. Fields




Director:

Edward F. Cline (as Edward Cline)

Writers:

John T. Neville (screen play), Prescott Chaplin (screen play)

Stars:

W.C. Fields, Gloria Jean, Leon Errol

Fields pitches his movie script to a producer, the idea behind his movie is absurd, but with a name like Esoteric Studios they should really go for it. As the producer reads the script we see the action unfold. Fields and Gloria Jean are on a flight in one very specious airplane. Fields jumps out of the plane to retrieve his liquor bottle and lands on a mountain unharmed. No real plot in this movie but Fields delivers some great gags and one-liners. The film ends in a mad car chase where he try's to get a women to the maternity hospital. Never Give a Sucker an Even Break is a very funny film that you can watch over and over with the family. ★★★★
