W. C. Fields signed contract and typescripts for The Great Man. Agreement between Fields and Boris Morros, dated July 31, 1941 for the anthology film titled, Tales of Manhattan, starring Charles Boyer, Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers and others. The scene starring Fields was cut from the film to reduce running time, but ironically was by far the funniest scene in the film. The sequence was discovered in the Fox vaults in the 1990s and seen in the Kevin Burns’ film, Hidden Hollywood II: More Treasures from the 20th Century-Fox Vaults. Also includes three typescripts for The Great Man.
