Biography of Bob Kane

Batman and Robert
October 24, 1916
November 3, 1998

Who is Bob Kane?

No, not the Tim Burton Batman has invented, which also has the merit of having raised the gloomy hero in the collective imagination. The credit is due to Mr Robert Kane, an anonymous character born in New York City on October 24, 1916, Park in attracting attention but has a very vivid imagination.
The shy Bob Kane start drawing for studying Eisner-Iger in the mid 30 's but the first work signed is published by Fiction House (publishing house founded by Eisner-Iger) "Wow, What A Magazine" in September 19It is the time, this, where Kane worked mostly on characters created by third parties (and by now have fallen into oblivion), as Peter Pupp, Hiram Hick, Pluto, Bobby and many others.
Starting from 1938 Bob the creator finds itself survived to collaborate with Dc Comics, where Superman had just started to depopulate, drawing several stories written by Bill Finger.
According to the legend, also reported by authoritative biographical reconstructions, that one day of the year 1939, Robert grace, inspired by the great success achieved by Superman, showed the sketch of a Chief supervisor new super hero: a creature of the night, acrobatic and bold but also human, too human (unlike all other superheroes, has no power) parents, traumatized by violent end at the hands of ruthless bandits, is dedicated to fighting crime. Was born Batman.
Kane's own admission to many were the elements of the myth of "bat man": the ancestors Superman and the Phantom, but even Dick Tracy, the heroes of pulp magazines, Zorro and even Leonardo Da Vinci (for drawings of flying men similar to technology used by bats and his hero for devilry).
But of this icon of our times, Bob Kane was not the only father. He himself admitted to having submitted his sketches to Bill Finger, the writer with whom he had worked until then to D.C., which, undeniably, improved the look of the character, developing the final garment of Bat-man (as it was originally known). The name of Finger, who died in 1974, never appeared in the credits of the stories, so much so that in Kane ran away from it on one occasion as "the hero not celebrated."
Nothing more true, in fact. For years it was the only signature of Bob Kane appearing next to the Batman logo, despite Bill Finger has written some of the most beautiful stories of Batman classic: his was the idea of a form with two blank spaces instead of the eyes and the idea of a hood instead of stiff bat wings that appeared in the very first stories.
Kane, thanks to the clever move to register the mark Batman to his name, was able to exploit the title of "father of Batman" despite then publicly you hold onto bitterness of substantial anonymity of other authors. Subsequently he worked on other characters but was concerned, along with the usual Finger, to create a series of secondary characters of Batman, then become a true plethora. Starting from Robin (throwing shoulder dell'eroe so boy fashion), in order to arrive at the Butler Alfred and the villains the Joker, the Penguin, the Riddler and Catwoman.
His entire output was also characterized by a continuous search for innovation in graphics, in an attempt to overcome the pattern of 5-6 boxes per page inherited from the adaptation of daily strips to size comics. The style of Bob Kane, however, remained almost unchanged (with some variations in the ears of the Batman costume) until 1965, although Kane drew now only very few Batman storylines since the mid-' 40, replaced by designers such as those mentioned above and others such as Jack Burnley, Sheldon Moldoff, Carmine Infantino and Stan Kaye. Its most beautiful boards remain precisely those daily strips of the period 1943-1946.
In the years ' 50 Bob Kane was asked to go to Hollywood to create characters for cartoons. Came then cartons (certainly not memorable) as Courageous Cat and Cool McCool, but it was in particular the success of the Batman TV series, in 1965, to do that move continuously in the mecca of cinema.
Pampered by the media, involved in all projects concerning his creature, Bob Kane lived in his mansion in West Hollywood the last 30 years of his life, writing books, articles, granting interviews and painting some sketches that later sold at very high prices (remember that in the hands of a journalist colleague of Viki Vale, in the Tim Burton movie?). A very different fate from that befallen the creators of Superman, who ceded the rights to National and not took advantage of the rich profits from merchandising.
Bob Kane died at 82 years old on November 3, 1998, and the cartoon world mourns him, even if his child is in good hands, more alive than ever: a true modern icon.

The following aphorisms Gabriel Laub are by far the most popular, while the web is very little life and literary production of this Polish author, which seems quite witty and forerunner of modern times, when he says that "the career of many actresses began with a role in the life of a Director".

Biography of f. Murray Abraham

Bad you become
October 24, 1939

Who is f. Murray Abraham?

Actor very popular in Italy for portraying the character of Unnamed in "Promessi sposi" by Salvatore Nocita and Jacopo in the "Marco Polo", in their television series, became then known from a remarkable film selected through investments. The effe bet before the name is in the eyes of the public one of the most curious mysteries of the actor. Nothing particularly occult: f. simply means Frank (sometimes also credited as Fred).
Actor from multiple personalities but strangely used almost always in the roles of "bad" (which perhaps is attributable to its choices of script, all along the same lines), Murray Abraham was born on October 24, 1939 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The international fame she kissed on the forehead when she decided to step into the shoes of the evil and envious (at least in imaginative version of the drama by Pushkin) Salieri in "Amadeus", which won an Oscar. It was again a "bad", as an antagonist of Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) in "Star Trek-insurrection", which gave him predictably great popularity at the younger crowd.
Always extremely busy actor Abraham recently played a series of films that have taken him around the world. Among his other memorable performances include the Bolivian drug Lord in "Scarface" (1983) alongside the huge Al Pacino, or the odious, obtuse and relentless Inquisitor in "the name of the rose" (1986). But that's not all.
In charming and magnetic Gallery villains collected by Murray Ambraham there's also the psycho attorney present in "the bonfire of the vanities" (1991).
Speaking of bad guys, the same Abraham confessed: "when I won the Oscar had 42 years: has made my life infinitely easier. Until then I was almost always without money. Sure, I'd love to win, but can get a conviction to the stereotype. There are actors that did not happen: is a piece I play always ' bad ', although for the first fifteen years of my career, I did almost exclusively comedy. Today I take more even consider for other genres. I tried to interpret other kinds of characters, but you have to take what's offered. It's a life of Gypsies ".
However, the American actor, now a prestigious teacher at the "Brooklyn College Theater Department," has been able to carve out some comic role, to be enjoyed for the alienating effect that makes, like for example in "Last action hero-the last great hero" (1993), a film starring the hero Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Italian audiences appreciated even in Woody Allen's "mighty Aphrodite" and "Mimich". Since 2000 we find him still in successful films like "Finding Forrester" opposite Sean Connery (where he impersonates professor Robert Crawford) and "I cavalieri che fecero l'impresa by Pupi Avati".
In 2003, directed by Renzo Martinelli participates discussed "Piazza delle cinque lune" freely adapted from the story of the kidnapping and murder of Aldo Moro.
