TTTP In Exile / 35mm cartoons in Detroit last weekend
« on: November 17, 2014, 02:02:44 pm »
Just wanted to mention Steve was involved with a great night of animation (almost al on 35mm) at the Redford Theatre in Detroit Saturday. A previously lost 1928 Felix the Cat Jungle Bungles and a Bray Lantz directed Dinky Doodle. Surprisingly the crowd really enjoyed the Romer Grey cartoon Hot Toe Mollie. Also on the bill were the Woody Woodpecker short Niagra Fools, Ballot Box Bunny, Famous Popeye Alpine something or other, Superman Mechanical Monsters, Van Buren's Making Em Move, the Harman Ising short that broke Disney's Oscar streak, High Note, the preachy one about not hurting dogs, and probably osme others I'm blanking on. They looked great on the big screen, and they really feel warmer than digitally projected versions (which may just be due to how the studios are transferring prints to digital and cleaning them up instead of to do with the nature of digital projection).

TTTP In Exile / Anyone read Life Animated?

Has anyone read the recent book "Life, Animated"? I'm wondering if it's entirely anecdotal (which is my impression) or if it spends significant space speculating (or referencing hard science) as to the underlying reasons for the affinity.

TTTP In Exile / Detroit classic cartoons
« on: July 12, 2013, 02:25:21 pm »
The Redford Theater in Detroit has some bonus cartoon action. Mary Poppins is this weekend; Jim Korkis will be there answering questions. Hopefully he'll also lecture, since I don't expect good things form a general audience. I have other things to do, and wn't be there. Ah well.

In two weeks, Dough Ray Me-ow will be showing before Notorious (which I will be at). Then in two weeks a Popeye cartoon "Jitterbug Jive" with the Long Long Trailer, and two weeks after that, the Woody Woodpecker Dopey Dick with Jaws.

TTTP In Exile / Another MGM blog

Sanek also started a chronological MGM blog at . Sanek is banned from here for the fake document incident, but the blog remains relevant. It appears to be screens and comments, so issues with truth are minimal in its current form.

TTTP In Exile / Animation History forum seems to be history...

The animation history forum at (along with everything else about the site) not just redirects to Facebook. If there were any threads there you liked, you may want to snag them from a Google cache before they disappear entirely.

TTTP In Exile / An MGM screenshot blog
« on: February 08, 2012, 01:15:12 pm »
There's an MGM screenshot blog at . The text there appears to be in Portugese, as the blogger is from Brazil.

Please note that splitting something like "video releaes" or "cartoons of the week" into their own forum sections will lead to many people never reading anything that's posted in them. Many of us will bookmark a specific forum and read the posts in it; we will not bother to check the other sub forums. This is a weakness of GAC that shouldn't be replicated.
