The Bank Dick, released as The Bank Detective in the United Kingdom, is a 1940 American comedy film starring W. C. Fields. Set in Lompoc, California, Fields plays Egbert Souse, a drunk who accidentally thwarts a bank robbery and ends up a bank security guard as a result. The film was written by Fields, using his alias Mahatma Kane Jeeves (derived from the Broadway drawing-room comedy cliche "My hat, my cane, Jeeves!"),and directed by Edward F. Cline. The film also stars Una Merkel, Richard Purcell, Shemp Howard (of the Three Stooges), Franklin Pangborn, Grady Sutton, Jessie Ralph and Cora Witherspoon. In 1992, The Bank Dick was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." Alternative titles for the film were The Bank Detective and The Great Man. With the success of his two previous films, You Can't Cheat an Honest Man and My Little Chickadee, Fields was able to demand complete creative control. Principal photography began in early September 1940. The Bank Dick received many favorable reviews.
