Frank Zeitlin

(18??19??)

Frank Zeitlin was the Producer for the animation studio Kine Komedy Kartoons which started production in 1916 with a series of dramatic portrayals of events drawn by Ernest H Mills, photographer, cartoonist and 'lightning artist' stage performer, under the series title Britannia's Budget.

Although not yet confirmed, it seems likely that he is Frank Isadore Zeitlin (1887-1849), a theaterical booking agent who would have known Mills from his stage act.

The Britannia's Budget films are referred to in some cinema advertising as "Official" war films, so it may be that they were directly sponsored and distributed by the Ministry of Information. Kine Komedy Kartoons subsequently got a distribution deal with the Broadwest Film Company, who proceeded to promote the films.
