    Marcus had tours of duty with the Fleischer and Van Beuren (RKO-distributed) cartoon studios in the 1930s, though most of his pre-Warners work was done for Charles Mintz’s Screen Gems studios, whose work, primarily on the Krazy Kat series, was distributed by Columbia. A photo of the Mintz studio staff in 1928 reproduced in Maltin (p. 210) shows Marcus, along with Art Davis, James “Shamus” Culhane, Manny Gould, and Harry Love. Marcus was also a director at the Lantz studio in the early 1960s.
