Yip Harburg at Fleischer

Yip Harburg

Jerry Beck has this fascinating item at Cartoon Research on Yip Harburg and his work at the Fleischer Studios in the early days of talking pictures.  Harburg, of course, was one of America’s finest lyricists, whose work includes the words for two of the most memorable songs  of the Great Depression—”Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?” and “Over the Rainbow” (from The Wizard of Oz).
