Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

Looking Back II

I met Leslie Caron in 1960. At Princeton I was a member of the Triangle Club, the group that puts on a full-scale original musical each year. We had an offshoot group, Triangle Junior, that presented a cabaret version of the Triangle Show at colleges and organizations. The summer of 1960, when I was the club's president, we toured European army bases for the USO. We had a stopover in Paris, where we were invited to visit the set of Fanny by director Joshua Logan, a former Triangle member and Triangle Club trustee. Our group's picture was taken with Ms. Caron, Mr. Logan, Charles Boyer, and Maurice Chevalier. Friday evening, 48 years later, Ms. Caron kindly signed my copy of the photo. (That's me on the far right.)
