Fragments of beauty
17 August 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Only a small part of this cartoon survive, about a minute and a half of lovely images by the foremost cartoonist of the the early 20th century. Several of Windsor McCay's cartoons are considered classics of the art, such as GERTIE THE DINOSAUR and THE SINKING OF THE LUSITANIA, but the draftsmanship and execution of these remnants make it, along with the Fleischer Superman cartoons, make it the most beautiful animation in the history of the art.
