See Them in the Funny Pages
boblipton19 March 2014
This Columbia Screen Snapshot is about cartoonists: not the ones who make animated cartoons, even though Walt Disney is prominently displayed, but the ones who draw the well known comic strips of the day, more than sixty years from today. Alas, all are gone and almost all o their comic strips. Shrinking space in newspapers and dying newspapers, as well as the evolution of comic books, have put paid to the beautifully drawn five-panel daily strip and the full page Sunday feature in color.

If you're a fan of these old-time comic strips, you'll enjoy seeing them at some sort of gathering in Hollywood. Each gets an average of five seconds of screen time as Don Wilson, better known as Jack Benny's announcer, calls out their name and their strip and that of their companion in mostly two-shots.
