Helen Kane's Complaint Is Dismissed She Has No Proof To Back Her Claims [1]


Helen Kane Lost Betty Boop Suit 1936

The Appellate Division yesterday unanimously affirmed an order of the N. Y. Supreme Court dismissing the complaint in a $250,000 damage suit brought by Helen Kane against Max Fleischer, Fleischer Studios, Inc. and Paramount Publix Corp. The complaint, in addition to damages asked for a permanent injunction restraining the defendants from using without Helen Kane's consent any pictorial representation of her in films of animated cartoons, particularly the Betty Boop pictures. She also asked for a temporary injunction to enjoin the defendants from unfair competition. The decision of a higher court pointed out that during the course of the trial of the complaint before Justice E.J. McGoldrick, the complaint was dismissed on June 23, 1934, as to Max Fleischer. This decision was an appeal from that dismissal.
