UPA Tribute in Paris

Dusty of the Circus

Jerry mentioned a UPA tribute coming to LA in February, but folks in Paris can get their fill of UPA this month. There will be a film tribute to the studio’s work on December 13 at the Espace KODAK (26 rue Villiot 75012 PARIS). The screening starts at 7:30pm and is being organized by L’AFCA (Association Française du Cinéma d’Animation). The film line-up includes some of the classic standards like GERALD MCBOING BOING, WILLIE THE KID and BARE-FACED FLATFOOT, but it also includes a lot of rare BOING BOING SHOW shorts like THE OUTLAWS, TWO BY TWO and DUSTY OF THE CIRCUS. Another rare piece of UPA on the line-up is a version of FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, directed in 1952 by Bobe Cannon, which is something that I’d personally love to see.
