Following up on Bendazzi, part 2 (1930-1939)

The second part of my series of posts taking a closer look at the British animators who are mentioned in Cartoons: One Hundred Years of Cinema Animation by Giannalberto Bendazzi (click here for part one). This time I'll look through his section on the thirties, in which he tells us that

In the thirties, the majority of British animators worked in advertising, with only a few involved in the production of entertainment feature films [...] While lacking in native talents ([Norman] McLaren's unique talent was still in the making), Great Britain became a stopover for foreign animators, including Lotte Reiniger, Hector Hoppin, Anthony Gross and Len Lye.

Here are the animators and their work that the section brings up:

Anson Dyer/Anglia Films
Sam Small
The King with the Terrible Temper

Roland Davies
Steve the Horse

This short overview is concluded with a biography of Len Lye.
