It was digitized by IU Libraries and made obtainable to the general public through Media Collections On-line. It was additionally featured by Rifftrax (obtainable to subscribers).
This edit is barely 6 minutes lengthy, however remains to be loads entertaining. It’s filled with touches that date it even in the event you missed the copyright yr.
