WALTER LANTZ
Creator of Woody Woodpecker inscribes a black and white publicity photograph of his wife (voice of Woody Woodpecker) and himself.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/Julian/Walter Lantz". B/w, 4¾x7. Shown with his wife Grace, Woody Woodpecker's voice after 1950. Walter Lantz (1900-1994), who was working in film animation from age 16, took over Universal Film's animation department in 1926. In 1935, the organization separated from Universal and became Walter Lantz Studios. Lantz was already producing popular movie cartoons, including Oswald Rabbit and Andy Pandy, when a noisy woodpecker at his wooded honeymoon cottage inspired him to produce his most popular character. Lantz produced Woody Woodpecker shorts - never a feature film - until 1975. Woody lives on, of course, under licensing agreements. The woodpecker's unforgettable laugh, originated by Mel Blanc, was furnished by Lantz's wife Grace Stafford (who had auditioned anonymously) after 1950. In 1979, Lantz received a special Academy Award for "bringing joy and laughter to every part of the world." Fine condition.
