  • Disney Strike of 1941: lefty newspaper coverage scans

    Hope I'm posting this in the correct forum.

    Saw this on BoingBoing this morning:

    http://www.boingboing.net/2007/01/16...ke_of_194.html

    In 1941, the workers at Disney Studios went out on strike -- and PM, New York's lefty newspaper, covered it in detail. Kip W, a Flickr user, has uploaded a fantastic set of scanned-in articles and pictures from FM's coverage. The strikers had an amazing grasp of theater, walking the picket-line carrying signs that parodied Disney characters, wearing Seven Dwarfs masks, etc. Link, Link to Wikipedia entry on 1941 Disney strike (Thanks, Amid!)

    My friends grandpa was a striker, and obviously lost his job. I'm not sure which it was, but he either was the original designer for Chernabog in Fantasia, or drew it, or did something with that character, before the strike of course.

      Was your friends last name Tytla? Vladamir "Bill" Tytla was the main animator on Chernabog. It's cool either way, but Tytla was a true Disney Animation legend, and that would make the story even cooler.

      The strike was a watershed event in the history of Disney animation. Some animators never worked again.

      In many ways it is sad that the artist didn't prevail as thier counterparts in sag and wga eventually did.
