Sorry none of us could help. But, thanks, for getting back and letting us know you got it. Sounds like it would be good to show with *International House*, a W.C. Fields film, where he keeps trying to tune in the bicycle races, on his TV-like invention.He gets Cab Calloway and the "Girls in Cellophane" instead, until the very end, when he finally gets the bicycle races. That film is from 1933 too. Bicycle racing was a very popular spectator sport back then.
