2010 Highlights.

W.C. Fields on Broadway Again!
This glorious W.C. Fields Exhibit at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center, May 19 through August 21. is an exhibit of love and family.
Curator, Dr. Barbara Cohen-Stratyner said, “This W.C. Fields' exhibit is wonderful....the attendance outstanding.”

June and July W.C. Fields' films featured at the Tuesday afternoon film series of the Library for the Performing Arts.
Some of the comments from attendees and film staff are
“The auditorium was packed at every screening,”
“Such warmth and love from the audience,”
“W.C. Fields' humor was not violent, it was not mean, he did not hit people,
he was humane and kind,”
“I haven't laughed so hard in years,”
“His humor is as relevant today, and he endures because it comes from the heart.”
