Flash Fulton src

In the late 1930s, in New York City, Flash Fulton was an extremely bold newsreel photographer, who captured quite a few exciting stories on film.

He first came to prominence covering the invasion of Cerania by Wurtberg, during which his photography exposed Chancellor Rudolf as both a war criminal and an imposter.[1]

Fulton's best known and most controversial work was his final newsreel, filmed in the Indian Himalayas during the Morro uprising, in which Fulton himself grabbed some firearms and very actively participated in fighting the axe-wielding cannibals.[2]

Flash Fulton's boss at Acme Newsreels was called "Gabby" and his sound man went by "Andy". Andy was prone to getting parking tickets,[3] and once crashed Fulton's car into a a lamp post.[4]
