Rudolf Ising
J.B. Kaufman

The following interview was recorded at Ising’s home in Newport Beach, California, on Sunday, 14 August 1988, a few years before his death. In 1988, J.B. had no specific plans to write about Disney’s silent career, but he did want to record this man’s memories of those seminal events in animation history. Ising, with characteristic kindness, obliged, and that afternoon they talked for nearly four hours about his experiences in the 1920s. When Russell Merritt and J.B. Kaufman collaborated on Walt in Wonderland: The Silent Films of Walt Disney a few years later, this interview became indispensable, and they quoted extensively from it in their text.
