The Bank Dick is a 1940 comedy directed by Edward F. Cline. In the film, Egbert Souse (W.C. Fields) is a family man who takes care of his family by winning radio contests. One day while sitting on a park bench, Egbert becomes an instant hero when he accidentally trips a bank robber. In appreciation of Egbert interrupting the robbery, he is offered a guard job at the Lompoc Bank. Shortly after taking the new position, Egbert is approached by J. Frothingham Waterbury (Russell Hicks), who tells him about some very lucrative Beefsteak mines shares. Eventually, Waterbury offers to sell Souse some shares. The only problem is he has no disposable income at the time. Although he has no income, his daughter's fiance, Og Oggilby (Grady Sutton), is a bank teller and has access to lots of money. In order to cover the cost of the shares, Egbert tries to convince Og to embezzle some money from the bank. Og reluctantly agrees, but his hesitance turns to horror when bank examiner, J. Pinkerton Snoopington (Franklin Pangborn), comes to check the banks books.moreless
