One Bad Knight

I finally got around to viewing some of the Jam Handy videos on the Internet Archive, and when I came across this little gem, I could not resist posting it.  Unlike most of the previous cartoons posted on the SSS, this one is blatantly an advertisement; but it has a nice story, and some good 1930's jokes, music and references.  Besides, how can you resist a medieval fairy tale about little boy helping a king save his daughter from the Black Knight with the help of a Chevrolet sedan?  Here is One Bad Knight
