Joshua Glenn of the Boston Globe has created a slideshow with audio commentary that show McCay's influence on cinema.
With Merkl's aid, I've produced a Brainiac audio slideshow demonstrating the influence of Winsor McCay's imagination and sense of humor on "L'Age d'Or," "King Kong," "Dumbo," "Mary Poppins," and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" -- which, as you know, Merkl argues in "Rarebit Fiend." Stats: 3 1/2 minutes long, 57 fabulous images, one narrator who hates the sound of his voice.Link
