[nice clean copy, no significant wear but a slight bump to the top rear corner]. (B&W and color photos and other illustrations) SIGNED by the editor on the half-title page. "A portrait of each winning cartoon includes a plot summary, the production history, and a critical analysis that explores the unique qualities that have earned the cartoon a place in film history." (The analysis/commentary is provided by such luminaries of animation history as Leonard Maltin, Joe Adamson, Charles Solomon, and John Canemaker.) It should be noted that "cartoons" is defined here as short (not feature-length) films, so you won't be finding the likes of BAMBI or YELLOW SUBMARINE here; just as well, though, as any such "50 Greatest" selection of any sort of film is fraught enough with difficult choices. I have to say, though, I don't find too much here to quibble with; as editor Beck states in his introductory note, the survey of animation professionals (many of whom are ASIFA members) resulted in "an extraordinarily well-rounded collection of classic animation. While it is full of popular Disney, MGM, and Warner Bros. films, it also includes cartoons by Walter Lantz, the Fleischer Studios, UPA, and the National Film Board of Canada, as well as pioneering efforts like Gertie the Dinosaur and the work of contemporary artists."
