History Detectives: Warner Brothers Cartoon Cels

Saturday, February 9 at 8:00 p.m.

Tukufu Zuberi doesn't recognize many of the characters in a box of cartoon drawings and cels, but together they tell an unexpected story about the early days of animation and the people behind the art.

Then, Elyse Luray unravels a love story when she explores why a regional governor cared enough about a slave to sign her emancipation papers. And did an elaborate dagger once belong to Benito Mussolini? Wes Cowan retraces the last steps of Fascist Italian dictator to find the answer.
