Comedy legend W.C. Fields (The Bank Dick) plays an inventor with a taste for drink in You’re Telling Me!, a rough-and-tumble Pre-Code. Having failed to sell his latest invention, Sam Bisbee (Fields) meets Marie Lescaboura (Adrienne Ames, The Death Kiss) on the train back to Crystal Springs, unaware that she is a foreign princess traveling incognito. Deciding to help make her new friend a success, Marie pays a visit to Sam’s hometown where she attempts to turn an uncouth eccentric into the darling of the country club set. Directed by Erle C. Kenton (Island of Lost Souls) and co-starring Joan Marsh (Road to Zanzibar) and Larry “Buster” Crabbe (Buck Rogers), this zany gem also features Fields’ uproarious recreation of his classic golfing sketch first performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1918.
