Official RANKIN/BASS Historian/Biographer Rick Goldschmidt, with access to the studio's archives, offers insight into the creation of the cult classic.Review:
Rankin/Bass Mad Monster Party (Miser Bros. Press) by Rick Goldschmidt Hardcover and soft cover, 268 pages Like many kids, I grew up watching Rankin/Bass animated films on television and for as long as I can remember they ve captured my imagination and my heart. But my affection for their work can t compare to the attention they ve received from official Rankin/Bass historian, Rick Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt is an accomplished artist and musician in his own right, but he s devoted much of his time and talent to researching and archiving the fascinating history of Rankin/Bass. His latest book is a richly illustrated look at the Rankin/Bass film MAD MONSTER PARTY (1967), which should appeal to adults and kids alike. Rankin/Bass helped pioneer stop motion animation techniques and the book highlights their accomplishments and collects a wealth of information related to this timeless film including rare character concept sketches, storyboard art, sheet music for the film s songs, interviews with cast and crew as well as the original shooting script and a reproduction of Dell s Mad Monster Party comic book. It also features an introduction by Arthur Rankin himself. Rick Goldschmidt s enthusiasm for his work is plainly apparent, which makes the book an absolute joy to read but it s also filled with important facts and historic details about the film. You can purchase Rankin/Bass Mad Monster Party directly from the Miser Bros. Press shop online and author Rick Goldschmidt is currently autographing hardcover copies of the book at no extra charge whenever you place an order. For more information please visit Miser Bros.
