I'm reading an italian book about Mickey Mouse, and I found a
reference to Erich von Stroheim.
The author, referring to the History "MM and the Pirate
Submarine", talks about the villain, Dr. Vulture, as a caricature of
the named above.
I was trying to look for some informations about him, and I found
out an actor and a photo, representing the characther played by
himself in the movie Foolish Wives ( about 1922).
The url is:
I think this movie could be that to which Gottfredson has referred
for the idea of Dr. Vulter character, if information given in the book
May anyone tell me if the correlation made between the villain of
the aforementioned daily strip and the actor in the photo is correct?
Do you think they resemble each other?
I hope my english is understandable.
thanks to everyone who will answer me.
