Let's all add Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935) as the next W.C. Fields Film to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. A portrait of family life in all its travails in W.C. Fields inimitable sweetness and gentleness, and keen insights into the human condition.


You can nominate up to 50 films. Another suggestion for nomination is the 1935 version of David Copperfield with W.C. Fields as Micawber. It is opined Charles Dickens must have had W.C. Fields in mind for this role.

Another suggestion is You’re Telling Me (1934) the talking version of So’s Your Old Man on the National Film Registry since 2008. In addition to these suggestions, nominate your favorite W.C. Fields FILMS!
