A Connecticut Yankee ★★★ 1931

A charming, if somewhat dated, version of the popular Mark Twain story, “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.” Rogers is a radio shop owner who dreams his way back to the Knights of the Round Table. Story rewritten to fit Rogers' amiable style and to make then-current wisecracks. Great cast overcomes weak points in the script. 96m/B VHS . Will Rogers, Myrna Loy, Maureen O'Sullivan, William Farnum, Frank Albertson; D: David Butler.
