Shamus Culhane

Shamus CulhaneJames "Shamus" Culhane (1908-1996) was a veteran animator and director. Considered one of the finest of his time, Culhane worked at almost every studio of the era, starting at Hearst and Bray Studios, moving on to Fleischer Studios and the Ub Iwerks studio, secured a job at Disney, made a brief return to Fleischers, had a very brief stint at Warner Bros. in the Chuck Jones unit, but the most important part of his career would have to be his tenure at the Walter Lantz cartoon studio, where he directed some of the best shorts from the studio, including the Woody Woodpecker short "The Barber Of Seville", no. 43 on The 50 Greatest Cartoons list. Post-Lantz, he founded his own animation studio, Shamus Culhane Productions, which produced thousands of TV spots, including a particularly famous Muriel Cigar advertisement, and later on produced classic shows like Rocket Robin Hood. Culhane worked on several made for TV specials and then went into semi-retirement. Later he published two acclaimed books: the instructional book "Animation: From Script to Screen" and his autobiography "Talking Animals And Other People". At his death on February 2, 1996, Culhane was survived by second wife, the former Juana Hegarty, and by two sons from his first marriage to Maxine Marx
