9PM - Free Admission - All Ages Welcome - Patio at Mississippi Station
Animation Night - A partial list of tonight's offerings
(Van Burien 1933 B&W) Nice touches of racism and homophobia round out this little gem. Oh, and it has donuts in it.Gypped in Egypt
(Van Burien 1930 B&W) When I Yoo Hoo
(Warner Bros. 1936 Technicolor) Pre-Daffy Duck, but unmistakably a Warner Bros. cartoon. Stop That Tank
(Disney 1942 Kodachrome) Produced by Disney during WWII. 90% of Disney's productions were for the US government during WWII, mostly instructional films for the armed forces and US propaganda to be shown in other countries.Grain that built a Hemisphere.
(Spanish language) (Disney 1943 Technicolor) Reckless Driver
(Lantz 1946 B&W) Complete with banned scene that the censors removed.Scrub me Mama
(Lantz 1941 B&W) Musical short featuring every bad African-American stereotype ever known, including a Mammy character. Made back when the N-word was "negro".Everglade Raid
(Lantz 1958 Technicolor) Woody Woodpecker decides to try his hand at alligator farming in Florida. Gator character is suspiciously similar to Hanna-Barbara's later "Wally Gator".Destination Earth
(Amer. Petroleum Inst. 1957 Technicolor) Propaganda film extoling the virtues of oil. If those bastards saw how much we are paying for gas now, they'd be thrilled to death their campaign was so successful.Der Blau Dunst
(German language) (NFBC 1965 color) Released in three languages, for some reason the German one seems most appropriate. Mod 60's psychedelic film that might be about smoking, advertising or psychiatry. I don't know, as I don't speak German, but it is damn entertaining.All films are courtesy of Tom Robinson's private collection. He's the tall rakish fellow running the projector and introducing all the films.
