Silent Movie “W.C. Fields in “Running Wild”

Silent Movie “W.C. Fields in “Running Wild”

Join Jeff Rapsis and his magical keyboard as they accompany the second movie in our seasonal Silent Movie Festival – W.C. Fields in “Running Wild”.

In one of his best silent roles, W.C. Fields plays a hen-pecked husband who lacks the courage to stand up to his domineering wife until an inadvertent encounter with a hypnotist completely upends the domestic status quo.

Filmed in 1927 it is a great showcase for the younger Fields’ abilities in pantomime and visual humor.
