"History Detectives" finds our story in some cels ...

Watch the full episode. See more History Detectives.

Here's the episode of the PBS History Detectives show from last night (as I posted on Sunday), in which they interviewed Mike Van Eaton, Dori Littell-Herrick, Jerry Beck and Martha Sigall in their search for the story behind some animation drawings and cels found in a salvage yard in Berkeley.

It's an interesting episode (the first eighteen minutes are about animation), and it has a connection to the story of our union.

What a great episode. I seen that lady at the Chuck Jones exhibit in Beverly Hills. I knew she was someone special.

I assume that Charlotte "Darling" was later Charlotte "Huffine"...? Sure looks like the same woman from the photos. She was one of the Assitstant animators at Bakshi's on Lord of the Rings (and I assume elswhere)

Charlotte Darling was indeed Charlotte Huffine (her married name).
