New Yorker cartoonist Liam Walsh brought this intersection of Steinberg and Alfred Hitchcock to my attention. From Hitchcock’s 1955 film, The Trouble with Harry, the opening credits.
Ink Spill visitors might remember that Liam also alerted this site to another Hitchcock/New Yorker connection. In Hitchcock’s 1944 film, Lifeboat, Eustace Tilley has a cameo at the 2:04 mark (sorry, you’ll have to find the Youtube clip).
From Tablet, June 21, 2012, “Syd Hoff’s Cartoon Life” — this graphic tribute to the late great Syd Hoff, who contributed cartoons to The New Yorker for forty years ( 1931 – 1975). Mr. Hoff died May 12, 2004 in Miami Beach.
This promises to be an interesting exhibit (see the poster for all the pertinent information). According to the show’s promotional material: “Rejected works handpicked by each artist will be shown alongside originals that ran in the magazine.” Keeping my fingers crossed that this exhibit makes its way east.
The poster above features a Bob Eckstein drawing. Also circulating online are at least four other posters, two with drawings by Carolita Johnson, and solos by Emily Flake and Shannon Wheeler. Collect them all!:
