Thanks to Jerry Beck for this great post on Animation Scoop about the recent Library of Congress release of a newly restored print of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." This Christmas classic, directed by Max Fleischer, was produced by the Jam Handy Organization in 1948 as a promotional film for Montgomery Ward department stores. Max worked on a number of films for the Jam Handy Organization in the years after he left Fleischer Studios - but this is certainly the best remembered.
