december 2009 I published the first post about THE HANGMAN. recently I found a print of the short in a decent quality and started to recreate some of the longer backgrounds. LES GOLDMAN and PAUL JULIAN produced the 11 min short in 1964, PAUL JULIAN painted all the backgrounds and character-stills of the film. as you will see in a series of upcoming posts, his paintings are true masterpieces. for UPA and the short THE TELLTALE HEART JULIAN developed a very unique style that he used in this film as well, a style that is influenced by EDWARD HOPPER ( 1882 – 1967 ) and BEN SHAHN ( 1898 – 1969 ).

And you have all seen Paul Julian’s backgrounds if you have ever watched Bugs Bunny cartoons!
