Spalding Sports Show (1947-1952)

Before the era of live TV broadcasts with instant replay to capture every nuance of the action, low light photography for night games, and long telephoto lenses to capture the plays close up from a long distance, sports fans depended on the newspaper for their daily sports fix. Sports columnists rattled off play by play of the previous day’s games in great detail, and put the scores in context with complex statistics. But those were just words… the fella responsible for putting a face to the facts and figures was the sports cartoonist.

One sports cartoonist stood out above all the rest… Willard Mullin. In his twenties, Mullin worked for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, but in 1934 he joined the staff of the New York World-Telegram where his work was syndicated across the country by the Scripps Howard News Services. He worked there until 1966 when he began drawing cartoons freelance for magazines and ads. He was widely published throughout his half century long career, with cartoons appearing in many publications, such as Colliers, Life magazine and Time, as well as numerous team programs and advertisements.

Between 1947 and 1952, Mullin created a series of comic books for Spalding which was given away to customers of sporting goods stores. Each page features a full page comic packed with cartoony action, amusing sports trivia, and of course a plug for a Spalding sporting goods product. These comics represent Mullin working at his peak, and since these were printed on glossy paper, it gives us a rare opportunity to study his inking style in detail. Animation Resources was fortunate to get access to a complete run of Spalding Sports Show and we are proud to be able to share them with our supporters.

Two Paper Puppet films by Lotte Reiniger
Download Page
“Helen La Belle” (1957) “A Night In A Harem” (1958)

In 1956, Lotte Reiniger partnered with a British company called Fantasia Productions to create animated paper puppet films in color. She only ended up making two films under this agreement, “Helen La Belle” and “A Night In A Harem”. The films were thought to only survive in fragmentary form until the British Film Institute combined two prints of each to create complete films.

“La Belle Helene” Synopsis: Paris, the son of King Priamos receives an apple intended for the fairest Goddess of all. Three Goddesses vie for the honor- Juno, Minerva and Venus. Each promises Paris a gift in return for being chosen, but Paris chooses Venus. Mercury takes Paris to meet Helena, wife of King Menelaos. Paris and Helena fall in love. The Gods conspire to kidnap King Menelaos so the couple can be alone.

“A Night In A Harem” Synopsis: Newlyweds traveling by hot air ballon are stranded when their balloon crash lands in the desert. Arab soldiers tie the groom to a palm tree and abduct his bride. She is taken to the Sultan, who locks her in his harem. The groom befriends a lion who leads him to the Sultan’s court. He attempts to rescue her, but is captured himself. At the last minute, the couple escapes when the balloon miraculously reappears.

These two films are unique because they are not silhouette films. The joints in the puppets are clearly visible. This reveals aspects of Reiniger’s technique that aren’t visible in her silhouette films.
