GEORGE DAVIS
The cartoonist and art director signs this letter describing how difficult it is to find work in the cartoon market
Typed letter signed: "George Davis" in blue felt. 8½x11. October 20, 1976, to "Dear Ms. Mendoza" in part: "Thank you for your nice note. I was very pleased to know that you like my work. Actually, I have not been active in the field for a number of years now. Along with the disappearance of magazines like LOOK, SATURDAY EVENING POST, AMERICAN, etc, there has been a general decline in the cartoon markets. As a consequence, I have had to busy myself with other things." George Davis (1914-1998) was a celebrated art director. Beginning his career as a sketch artist at Warner Brothers Studio, he later began work at 20th Century Fox, his first film being Joseph L. Mankiewicz's fantasy The Ghost and Mrs. Muir in 1947. Mankiewicz was a director for whom he frequently worked, notably on House of Strangers (1949), All About Eve (1950), and 5 Fingers (1952). He contributed to over 50 other films including Funny Face (1957) and Mutiny on the Bounty (1965). Davis was also the initial project manager of Disneyland Tokyo and the primary designer of Park City, UT. He won Academy Awards for his work on The Robe (1953) and The Diary of Anne Frank (1959). Lightly toned. Normal mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
