Description: The Hammer Museum and the UCLA Film & Television Archive present a free screening of the 1979 feature film starring Jim Henson’s Muppets.
From the website:
The Muppets’ big-screen debut, a magical, musical road trip across America, tells the story of how the troupe first met with wised-up wit and whimsy to spare. As Kermit treks cross-country from his swampy home to Hollywood, he’s joined by Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, The Electric Mayhem and the rest of the gang, plus an all-star human cast that includes Mel Brooks, Bob Hope, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor and Orson Welles in cameos. Infectiously toe-tapping songs by Paul Williams, including “Rainbow Connection” and “Movin’ Right Along,” set a bouncing rhythm for a film that will have kids of all ages smiling and humming all the way home.
Producer: Jim Henson. Screenplay: Jerry Juhl, Jack Burns. Cinematographer: Isidore Mankofsky. Cast: Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Richard Hunt. 35mm, 94 min.
