(As) someone who is concerned about our situation in the world as human beings, I wonder sometimes, ‘Hey, I’ve wandered into this cartoon world. Am I doing the right thing?’ (But) for me, it’s as important as a great novel.

Hardboiled animation for private dicks and their femme fatales! Cartoon historian Jerry Beck hosts an evening of animated tough guys — and by “guys” we mean Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird and Goofy — in parodies of classic Film Noir, made during the golden age of the genre. Rare 35mm and 16mm film prints of some of the funniest (not to mention the most violent, and even sexy) animated cartoons ever made. Private eyes, plainclothes cops, hapless grifters and starving putty tats all figure into the murder and mayhem. Don’t miss this rare compilation of animation from out of the shadows!
