LOS ANGELES, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2023 /EINPresswire / -- Chris Yogerst , an acclaimed author and renowned film historian, took center stage, dazzling a packed house at the Burbank Public Library on Thursday, November 16, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm (PST) for an event celebrating his latest literary sensation, "The Warner Brothers."
An audience of over 100, including Warner Bros. employees and Warner family members, witnessed the magic of Yogerst's storytelling prowess. George Feltenstein, a luminary in the industry, proclaimed the book "the best book written about the Warner brothers," igniting a spark of excitement among the captivated crowd.
In a poignant moment, Jack Warner Jr.'s daughter, still grappling with her father's historic departure from the family business, thanked Yogerst for championing her father's legacy. Also at the event was a recently retired animator who began his career at Warner Bros. with the legendary Chuck Jones (of Looney Tunes fame). He shared stories of the Warner brothers and added a touch of nostalgia to the evening. The animator confirmed the legend that Jack Warner was so ignorant about their animation unit he once thought Warner Bros. owned Mickey Mouse, informed Yogerst. Studio tour guides, always looking for fresh insights, also attended the event and eagerly immersed themselves in the rich tapestry of "The Warner Brothers."
Yogerst said in an interview with My Burbank that his love and admiration for the Warner brothers began "with falling in love with their topical, hard-hitting, fast-paced films. From there, I learned that the movies represented the brothers in myriad ways. The brothers were the ultimate underdogs, and their films always managed to represent such figures throughout history."
