You will not believe it was released in 1932.
I thought that I was having a boring bad day, and then I saw this as an "fill out the rest of the hour" piece at the end of a local television movie feature, and this was far more interesting.

An offering from Radio Pictures, it is bizarrely over acted, yet here it works and with good reason. It is a cleverly crafted comedy short that twists an old familiar story. I just can not understand how this parody of old morality plays complete with "Simon Legree" type villain, has escaped cult film status!

No, it's not a knee-slapper, but should you get a chance, do see it. You really will not believe it was released in 1932.
