Humpty Dumpty, the Fat Cat

A little bit Tower of Babel, a little bit Icarus, and a whole lot Blanch Fish Wright's Mother Goose,* this film from the 1930's warns that the rich will fall.  Via Erik Loomis at L,G&M.

*I noticed Rock a Bye Baby, The Old Woman in the Shoe, the image of the old woman on the broom (There was an old woman went up in a basket?), Rub a Dub Dub, and, obvs, Humpty Dumpty, amongst others.
