Can You Identify Figure Maker?

you tube alfred hitchcock

I again am going to ask the public. Does anyone know who made the ventriloquist figure used in this Hitchcock episode?

At first I thought it might be an Insull but with rolling eye winker and slot jaw I doubt it was made by Len.

So lets see if we can identify the maker.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to:

    She’s a Rene. He posted her on Facebook a while ago

    Hmm…? Well, who made figures for TV studios at the time? Rene? It may have been made by the studio prop house. It is an exquisite figure!

  3. Glenn Cargyle worked with mannequins oversculpted as it is so stated in this piece so my guess is that he did this lifelike one in the film.
