1913: Vitagraph Asks Winsor McCay If He Had Finished Drawing some "Film About Some Dinosaur Named Gertie"

Via Rob Stolzer with gratitude:

"John Canemaker posted this historical gem on his FB page. J. Stuart Blackton, the co-founder of The Vitagraph Company, reached out to some hack cartoonist named Winsor McCay in 1913, asking if he would show his film about some dinosaur named Gertie, if he had the drawings finished. Wow!"
