The Animation Guild Golden Award Interview #9 -- Jack Ozark

From long ago (1984) but not particularly far away (Toluca Lake -- at the long-gone Sorrentino's Restaurant on Riverside Drive).

Harvey Deneroff interviews animator Jack Ozark:

Jack Ozark started in the cartoon business at Fleischer in March of 1932. Working his way up to animator, he moved with the company to Miami in the late thirties and worked on Gulliver's Travels, Mr. Bug Goes to Town and the early Superman shorts before his country called him for military service in the dust-up known as World War II.

After the war, Jack spent several years at Famous Studios (the Fleischer studios corporate successor) and then years on the west coast which included work at UPA, Disney, Bakshi and two decades at Filmation. Mr. Ozark passed away on November 16, 2000 at the age of 86.
