Dangerous Dan McFoo

This encore from 2011 is the first part of a two part set, both directed by Tex Avery with the same story, but from different times and different studios.  The first short is the 1939 version made by Warner Bros.  From the Internet Archive, here is Dangerous Dan McFoo.  This copy has subtitles in French, and Betty Davis shows up around 2:40.
