Milt Kahl Before Disney

The always interesting film blog Greenbriar Picture Shows has an entry on the work that Milt Kahl did prior to starting at Disney.  He did advertising art for the Fox cinemas on the west coast of the U.S.  One of the ads pictured has a 'K' signature in the corner, making it highly likely it's Kahl's work.

Somebody tell Andreas Deja about this.

I left a similar comment on that blog, but the "Chandu the Magician" poster has the same "K" as "Dancers in the Dark", and the "Island of Lost Souls" poster is pretty clearly signed "MILT KAHL" in a little box towards the lower right corner.

John Canemaker's book "Walt Disney's Nine Old Men and the Art of Animation" talks about Kahl's early illustration work.
