Directed by A. Edward Sutherland

It’s the Old Army Game (1926) is an uproarious silent comedy in which the inimitable W.C. Fields finds it impossible to get some sleep. It was the fourth film in which Fields appeared, but the first over which he had some control, as it was adapted from his own stage play. Co-starring Louise Brooks (also in her fourth feature), and directed with verve by A. Edward Sutherland, It’s the Old Army Game is a non-stop comedy of errors. Fields plays Elmer Prettywillie, a druggist kept awake by clamorous garbage collectors, a nosy woman seeking a 2-cent stamp, bogus land deals, and phony fortunes.


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Mastered in 2K from 35mm film elements preserved by The Library of Congress

Audio commentary by film historian James L. Neibaur, author of THE W.C. FIELDS FILMS

New score by Ben Model
