Winsor McCay: The Master Edition [DVD]
Though his name lacks "household word status" in the early 21st century, U.S.-born animator Winsor McCay (1869-1934) made a strong enough historical impact on his chosen form that he is perhaps rivaled only by Walt Disney as far as long-term influence. In fact, many of McCay's signature characters have far outlasted their creator - including Gertie the Dinosaur and Little Nemo, the adventurer in Slumberland. This collection features numerous classic animated shorts by McKay, including Gertie on Tour, Flip's Circus, Bug Vaudeville and The Pet. The set also includes Remembering Winsor McCay, a short 1976 documentary by admirer and fellow animator John Canemaker, on the director's remarkable career.
