    Check out the 30's version of David Copperfield (with WC Fields as Wilkins Macawber). There's a scene where the guy playing Steerforth is entertaining Copperfield's friends by singing a verse of the Outlandish Knight. At least I caught the phrase father's stable where there stand thirty and three. Of course that's propethic in the plot.
