John Hubley: A Centennial Salute

John Hubley (1914-1977) was an important American animator who worked at Disney during the 1930s and 1940s but later joined United Productions of America, where he created Mr. Magoo and helped pioneer UPA’s more contemporary and design-y style of “limited animation.” After running afoul of the House Committee for Un-American Activities in the early 1950s, he left UPA and founded his own independent animation company with his wife and fellow artist, Faith. There he won three Academy Awards for Best Animated Short Subject. The eight films we will show in this compilation all come from that period of his career. All will be shown in restored 35mm color prints and most have memorable jazz scores (by Lionel Hampton, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Quincy Jones, et al.). Program includes Adventures of an * (1957); The Tender Game (1958); the Oscar-winning Moonbird (1959); The Hat (1964); Urbanissimo (1967); Windy Day (1968); Of Men and Demons (1969); and Eggs (1971).
