American Austin Bantam


What a great movie! Twain and Rogers may be the two greatest satirical humorists to date, and what a joy it is to see them intersect in this classic.

The American Austin was among the first compact cars built in the U.S. and this movie wasn't the only one to use them for comic effect. W.C. Fields makes more extensive use of one in International House. But in this movie, how did that tall, armor-clad man fold himself into that thing?
