ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive: Comics: People On Paper (MGM/1945)

ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive: Comics: People On Paper (MGM/1945)

Once more ASIFA-Hollywood has dug deep and come up with pure gold: a 1945 MGM short subject that shows the top newspaper cartoonists of the day at work in their studios and homes...including our very own Milton Caniff (the movie clip is at the bottom of their post). A big THANKS goes out to Steve Worth, Bill Turner and the rest of the gang at the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive for helping to keep Milton's memory alive. (Click on the picture to see the article.)

The Girls of Steve Canyon - Part 1

#9227-27 - Lt. Col. Steve Canyon (Dean Fredericks) is lining up a date for the evening on his return to his base in Puerto Rico, after completing his mission in the STEVE CANYON episode, "STRIKE FORCE."

That's what the legend says on the back of this original publicity photo...not a thing about the "First Spanish Girl" (Yvonne Preble, middle) as listed in the on-screen credits, or the "Second Spanish Girl" (Mary Tyler Moore, right) in one of her very first appearances on television! Remember, you saw it here first, again another rare and probably never before published photo. It's interesting that quite a few MTM/Dick Van Dyke Show alumni probably met on this series!
