Helen Kane Says That Betty Boop Is A Poor Caricature [1]


The chubby Helen Kane insists that Betty Boop is nothing more or less than a caricature of herself and not so much of a caricature at that. She expects to show that Betty's "Boop-Oop-a-Doop's" are exact simulations of the baby voiced style of song which she claims to have originated years before Betty Boop made her debut before the movie going public. All that Justice McGoldrick has to consider at the moment is whether Betty and Helen look alike and whether the similarity, if any, would cause the public to think of one while seeing the other.

Max Fleischer was the only witness to testify today and under direct examination he said that Betty Boop was merely a character which grew out of his imagination. He said he had no individual in mind in 1930 when he decided to launch Betty on the screen.
