With Monte Brice. THE DENTIST (1932) Hilarious goings on with typical comedic golfing in the morning, then the classic scenes with Fields pulling and drilling a woman's dental work, which at one time was banned because it was considered "suggestive." Also stars Leslie Pearce, Babe Kane, Elise Cavanna, Zedna Farley, Bud Jamison, and Bobby Dunn. THE PHARMACIST (1933) Fields is hilarious as the pharmacist with the whining daughter, pushy wife, goofy customers, obnoxious children, and other laugh filled situations that could only occur in Field's drugstore. Comedy genius to watch again and again.
