Jacques Kapralik

Jacques Kapralik was a Romanian American caricaturist best remembered for his work with MGM in the 1940s and 1950s. Kapralik specialized in designing miniature models resembling film stars, which were then photographed against backgrounds giving a three-dimensional effect. Although Kapralik's work occasionally appeared onscreen in films such as Presenting Lily Mars, most of his output was devoted to publicity materials in trade magazine ads, posters and press kits. Kapralik died in 1960, in Los Angeles, California.
