Zen 1077: Space is bent! Einstein's Theory of Relativity explained by the creators of Betty Boop

I'm slightly underselling it here. This is a 20 minute-long theatre release version of a 1923 educational documentary, produced by the Fleischer Studio that also created Betty Boop and made Superman cartoons. It's very basic, but quite elegant for it. It also features a demonstration of the non-relativity of the speed of light using two pistols tied to a wagon wheel. Who says physics can't be fun?
