not a Fields fan, but this was quite enjoyable! easily the best I've seen from his many films
I think that guy wanted some kumquats.
Absolutely hilarious and the manner in which Fields seems to casually accept his misfortune in each scene as if it's the natural state of things, but keeps pressing on is great, and his timing and delivery is always exceptional.
Great dialogue even if it doesn't have the one liner crackle and pop of a Marx brothers routine. Deservedly an all timer.
