Black Book Interviews Ralph Bakshi; Details on Bakshi NY Appearances in April
The Black Book website has posted an interview with Ralph Bakshi, the legendary animator behind films such as Fritz the Cat, the animated Lord of the Rings, and the controversial Coonskin. The highly opinionated Bakshi speaks candidly about his youth, the reactions he’s gotten for many of his cartoons, and why he left Hollywood. (NOTE: Bakshi’s interview contains profanity.)
