Classic Film Friday: Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

I found this movie quite by accident. Channel surfing and it just popped up on TCM. Songbird and I settled in and enjoyed it.

Hank Martin (Bing Crosby) is a Mr. Fix-it (and you have to know Bing is going to croon for us right?) he gets knocked out while he is riding his horse out to a client's house. He wakes up in the 5th century, in England. And that is where the comedy starts. Well especially when everyone thinks Hank is a powerful wizard, and there is a bit of a love triangle with Alisande la Carteloise (Rhonda Fleming) and Sir Lancelot (Henry Wilcoxon).
