NBC background model designed by Kathleen Ankers, now in the museum of the
city of New York. This is a fully articulated and illuminated plexiglas
model measuring 16'x12'x12' overall. The cranes move, the window washer goes
up and down the building, the taxis move along the Hudson River drive, the
street lights and building lights turn on. It was built at Lincoln Studios
over a period of 5 weeks.
I'm so glad to hear that this piece of Ankers' work is preserved. Is
it on display at the Museum of the City of New York or just in their
archives? I hope the museum has a few foul-mouthed docents to preserve
another part of Kathleen's heritage from LNwDL.
I just found the piece trolling images. By reading it.. the way it appears it is IN
the museum of the city of New York. If we had somebody in New York who
could venture that way and take a look someday, as a field trip, maybe we
could know for sure? She sure meant a lot to Dave.. and her work is the set
which is located behind him at the Ed Sullivan now for those who don't know..
A couple of our photos:
