The perfect way to enjoy a Satruday: Turner Classic Movies will be honoring Chuck Jones's centennial year with a film retrospective on Saturday, March 24th. Click here for the play list and times. You'll be treated to a panoply of Jones's most cherished cartoons, starring your favorite Looney Tunes characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Road Runner, and Pepe le Pew. Make some popcorn and stay up late to watch his only feature film, "The Phantom Tollbooth" and look for him in a cameo role! I can hear the laughter already...can't you?
The Chuck Jones Center is pleased to welcome its first Guest Curator, author and historian, Jerry Beck. Our Guest Curators will, over time, comment on the art and films of Chuck Jones, selecting art from the archive and the library of films that Jones created throughout his lifetime. Jerry graciously agreed to inaugurate the series by selecting three Chuck Jones films that he felt epitomized Chuck's talent and genius. To read his commentary and to watch the cartoons he selected, click on Guest Curator. Enjoy!
