Video: Milton Caniff at Work

This 11 minute vintage film of Milton Caniff, in his studio, is from the Prelinger Archives. There is no sound -- but it's a fascinating look at Caniff, brush in hand, drawing.

Thanks to Jeff Quitney for putting this on YouTube,

So was that Frank Engli's hand in the opening shot? Looked more like his lettering than Caniff's. Was Engli also left-handed?

Wow. Yes, that's a good question. I would think it was Engli, but I really cannot know.

Would love to get someone else's input, including who shot the footage and what (if anything) was it used for.
