In the more enlightened days of the 1930s, W.C. Fields became a household name by playing a cranky alcoholic who detested children. In this, one of his finest films, Fields is a New Jersey grocer whose inheritance of a fortune does nothing to cure him of his obnoxious family, awful neighbors, or the persistent presence of his archfoe, Baby LeRoy.

It's A Gift is screening as part of the series: Agnès B.: Rebellion, Resistance and Fun
