The goal of this blog is to help people identify the many wonderful (and then not so wonderful) animators from the Golden Age of cartoons. Check back every day for more fun!

Schlesinger Studio Photos
The auctions for these vintage photos ended some time ago.
Jerry Beck passed them onto Martha Sigall and she was kind enough to ID who she could in them.
This first one is of Bob Clampett's black-and-white Looney Tunes unit.
TOP ROW: Bob Cannon, Leahdora DaSilva, Ernest Gee, Izzy Ellis, Bob Clampett, George Jordan, Helen Curry, Dick Thomas, Kay Vallejo, Lu Guarnier, Dick Jones (Chuck's brother, partially hidden), Dorothy Worth, Mary Tebb, Silvia Rogers, Vannie Baker, Virginia Slaughter, Onita _______ (Martha couldn't recall her last name) and Unknown.
Sitting is Left to Right: Sid Farren, John Carey, Jack MacLaughlan, Vive Risto and Leon Redman.
She said the photo must be from 1938 because Leahdora DaSilva died in 1939 of TB of the Spine. Slyvia Rogers married Al Tarter (The guy with mustasche and glasses in the photo below) and they moved to England.
Here's some real animator manliness! I wish I knew who else were in these hysterical gag photos.
Thanks for the IDs, Martha! You're one of the good ones.
