The Affairs of Anatol( Visual )

5 editions published between 1921 and 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tale about a hypocritical New York sophisticate, Anatol De Witt Spencer, was freely adapted from Schnitzler's play. His marriage is tested by his 'philandering', culminating in his encounter with Satan Synne, 'the world's wickedest woman', which only serves to confirm Anatol's inability to face the truth about himself and 'the ways of women'. The front-on compositions, colour tinted and filmed in Art Nouveau-designed sets are, in the words of Charles Higham, 'like a series of Beardsley illustrations to Oscar Wilde'

Although the comedy is necessarily more physical and energetic this is the Fields' film that set the pattern for his subsequent film career. It has a strange desperate pre-Depression quality and has been described as "one of the most nihilistic and violently misanthropic of all silent comedies." The majority of the gags were based on Fields' vaudeville acts at the Ziegfield Follies. It also set the standard for Fields' continuing unpleasant encounters with children. W.C. is Elmer Prettywillie, proprietor of the town's drugstore. Louise Brooks is in a main supporting role as his salesgirl. The film opens with Fields awakened in the dead of night to sell a two cent stamp and ends with a gross family picnic and a reversal of the Florida land scam. The title comes from the pea and walnut shell sleight-of-hand
