Something uplifting before everything goes to hell.
Animator Max Fleischer, immigrant to America from Poland, used Cab Calloway’s version of “St James Infirmary” in 1933 to create this surreal Betty Boop cartoon. He invented the Rotoscope, which allowed animatation of Cab’s dance moves. Remember, melting pots create the best art. pic.twitter.com/bz5ryMxYMH
