  Jan. 3, 1947, Fields' Funeral

Hattie Fields Letter A letter attributed to Harriet “Hattie” Fields, who was married to W.C. Fields, has been listed on EBay. The vendor says that the letter was written to a member of the McIntyre and Heath comedy team. Bidding starts at $35.

On the jump, The Times’ account of W.C. Fields’ funeral. On orders of Mr. Fields' son, Carlotta Monti “was not to be admitted until the crypt was sealed,” The Times said. Note the sad vignette about a member of the old vaudeville team of Jimmy Duffy and Fred Sweeney coming to pay his respects.
