joel priddy, national treasure
See, Ray, the thing about effusive internet compliments is sometimes your wife sees them. And then, say, your face is turning purple because you can’t open a jar of peppers, or your standing there wondering if you can just turn your longjohns inside out and get another day’s wear out of them, because, geez, it’s cold out there, and she looks at you and says, under breath, "National Treasure."
Apropos absolutely nothing, here are some old doodles of Silver Age Wolverine.
Remember when Bilbo killed the dragon with an improvised crossbow and married a princess and ruled the City of Golden Bells?
First Animated Hobbit - directed by Gene Deitch, produced by Rembrandt Films (by RembrandtFilms)
In anticipation of Peter Jackson’s 2nd Hobbit film release, Rembrandt Films wants to share the FIRST ANIMATED HOBBIT adaptation by NUDNIK’s creator, Gene Deitch!!!
Here’s the story:
In the early 1960’s, animation producer William L. Snyder (founder of Rembrandt Films) told his director and collaborator, Gene Deitch, that he had purchased the rights to an unknown 1927 children’s novel, THE HOBBIT. In order to hold his option, Snyder had to “produce a full-color motion picture of THE HOBBIT” by a certain date in 1966. So to meet this deadline while he tried to interest the studios in a much bigger motion picture, the very first version of THE HOBBIT was produced by Rembrandt Films and directed by Gene Deitch!
