4 of W.C. Fields' films, Million Dollar Legs (1932), It's a Gift (1934), The Bank Dick (1940), Never Give a Sucker an even Break (1941) . Million Dollar Legs is about a bankrupt nation of super athletes who are unaware of their physical prowess. When a brush salesman who was to be executed for pursuing the President's daughter talks the firing squad into buying his brushes instead, forms an Olympic team of the subjects to win the $$, the humor kicks into high gear. The rest of them are also funny. There is a youtube clip with John Cleese narrating TCM's star of the month & such.
