W.C. Fields at the home he rented in 1928 while appearing in Earl Carroll's Vanities, 7th Edition. The house shown in the film at 15 Dunster Road, Great Neck, New York on Long Island looks much the same today as it did in 1928. You can see the Google image here: http://tinyurl.com/6ns6fnh Confirmation that W.C. Fields rented the house at the time can be found in the booklet, "Russell Gardens Golden Anniversary: 1931-1981," a PDF of which can be obtained here: http://tinyurl.com/6p3qm7t (It might take a minute to download.) There is also in the booklet an illustration of the bridge W.C. Fields walks over, "Scene in the Russell Gardens Woodland Park." A tip of the hat to Brent Walker for the sleuthing that brought this information to light.

Film by George Mann of the comedy dance team, Barto and Mann.
