Lost Treasures on the Internet: Vol. I

Wandering around the Internet Archive Movie Image Collection, I came upon this nutty Betty Boop cartoon, which purports to be the Snow White story but soon evolves into a David Lynchian music video for St. James Infirmary. Either genius or completely off the rails; I’m not sure which now and wasn’t when I first saw it in a Smithsonian cartoon festival 30 years ago or so.

Judge for yourself.

From the Vintage Cartoon collection, where you’ll also find Popeye, Little Lulu, Woody Woodpecker, and Felix the Cat.
