"DREAMS OF GLORY" (1944)




A friend of mine mentioned this 1944 William Steig New Yorker cartoon in an e-mail he wrote to me after seeing Inglourious Basterds and I thought that, in line with our conversation last week, in case you had never seen the cartoon you might want to get familiar with it.
See also an interesting article by Sidney Blumenthal which references Hitler's love of the American West as portrayed by a popular German writer, whose work is mentioned in IB. Thanks, Andy!
