Most people would know the remake of this story from The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told collection of Joker stories. The 1966 version of the story in that tome written by E Nelson Bridwell and with art by Carmine Infantino basically was an abridged version of the original with some panels lifted directly from that story and was featured in a giveaway book from Kelloggs.

This original version of the story is from 1949. The art looks like it’s by Dick Sprang and the abundance of oversized props indicates that it was probably written by Bill Finger.
