THE BANK DICK
Cline | 1940 | US | 72m
“American Gagsters”
6:30, 9:15 at BAM

The Bank Dick, written by Fields under the nom de plume Mahatma Kane Jeeves, contains many of the same themes found in his short films: the hectoring family, small-town puritanism, irritating children, the love of drink and smoke… These themes served Fields well, not only in this film, but in most of his better work. And what makes the comedy unique, especially for its time, is that Fields grants no one moral high ground. Everyone has an agenda, is on the take, is insipid or simply meddlesome; the worst character traits usually belong to Fields himself. Although this style of comedy is sometimes tried today… rarely is it done with the subtle malice of which Fields was a master.”
Dennis Perrin, Criterion
