Indexer Notes

Originally Al Bryant art id by Craig Delich 9/05, but tilting figures with long upper body and akward way of standing and walking, and also broad shoulders and narrow head on stretched neck are all pointing to Zolne. He is credited on both pencils and ink on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, but inking vary, so uncertain there.

Indexer Notes

Some heads in 3/4 backview with streched neck and the jawbone going back behind the ear point to Tirman, but the short figures and some heads in sideview could be Quackenbush. He is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who for 1944-46. Uncertain.
