Looking for something to do after all the presents have been opened and all the parties are over? On Monday, December 26th at 2 & 7 pm, The Alex Film Society (of which I am a part of) will be presenting the 2nd annual Greatest Cartoons Ever event at The Alex Theatre in Glendale California (216 N. Brand Boulevard).
Each year we select eight great cartoon shorts from the golden age of animation, then project rare 35mm film prints (some of them in original Technicolor; all of the from the studio vaults) on the large Alex Theatre screen. Great characters, great films and an incredible movie-going experience. This year’s program includes:
Duck Amuck (Daffy Duck, 1953, Warner Bros.)
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Mouse (Tom & Jerry, 1947, MGM)
Mother Goose’s Birthday Party (Mighty Mouse, 1950, 20th Century Fox)
Popeye Meets Ali Baba (with Olive Oyl & Bluto, 1937, Paramount)
Gerald McBoing-Boing (1951, UPA, Columbia)
Lonesome Ghosts (Mickey, Donald & Goofy, 1937, Disney)
Woody Woodpecker (1941, Universal)
What’s Opera, Doc? (Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd, 1957, Warner Bros.)
