John Landis on

Never Give a Sucker an Even Break

Released 1941
Distributor Universal Pictures

W.C. Fields’ last starring vehicle was shot under the title The Great Man, and despite a host of studio-mandated cuts, stands as a triumphantly nonsensical, semi-autobiographical farrago of unreconstructed Fieldsiana. Sadly, few original Fields trailers exist so this one is a fan-made attempt to duplicate the style of Universal promotion circa 1941.
