As promised, here’s a little photo record of Thursday’s talk at the NYPL main branch on “W.C. Fields in Vaudeville”. As they say on social media, “Pictures — or it didn’t happen!” This batch was taken by the talented and generous Jonathan Smith (except for the one he appears in below of course). I’ll be converting the talk into an essay and sharing it here later this month. As always, the NYPL staff were impeccable hosts and they brought me a terrific crowd of interested civilians. This event was part of Fields Fest, our celebration of the life and career of W.C. Fields. For info on upcoming Fields Fest events go here.
