Great B&W precursor to BABE I saw this many years ago on the TONIGHT SHOW with Johnny Carson.
20 December 2003 | by larry41onEbaySee all my reviews

I saw this many years ago on the TONIGHT SHOW with Johnny Carson. Someone had shown it at a party he had attended and he loved it so much he borrowed the film to show on TV. It was/is hilarious and it's easy to see how it won the Academy Award for Best One-Reel Short of 1944. I wish someone would make it available again on VHS, DVD or run it on TV like Turner Classic movies or AMC (formerly American Movie Classic, now closer to Allot More Commercials) This was one of the best attempts at putting words in the mouths of animals, it's no BABE but it's a nice B&W early version with swing music added for punch!
