On April 6th, at 10:00 am,  UCLA will be premiering several preservations/film restorations of several animated cartoons, many of which in partnership with ASIFA Hollywood, at the Billy Wilder Theater. The screening will be free, and here is the rundown of the films being presented

FRENCH FRIED (1930), the very first Terrytoon with Farmer Alfalfa, and long out of the public eye as it was never released to TV. Restored from a 35mm Dupe Negative

MUSICAL MEMORIES (1935), one of Fleischer Color Classics, notable for featuring the most 3D models of any of their cartoons. Restored from both the camera and track negatives

JAPANESE LANTERNS (1935), another two color film, this time by Ted Eshbaugh on the East Coast. Restored from the sole existing 35mm Nitrate

HOLD IT! (1938), a Dave Tendlar Color Classic where he explores chase ideas he'd return too in 15 years with Herman and Katnip. Restored from the SEN and a varsity density track negative

RED RIDING HOOD (1946), from a series of Coke Cola commercials for Latin America. Restored from a 35mm Fullcolor Nitrate, likely the only original print in existence

SUPERMAN TRAILER (1941), for the Fleischer series, produced for the special novelty series. Restored from its SEN and a optical track negative

A KICK IN TIME (1940), the first of the last batch of Color Classics with Hunky and Spunky as the stars. Restored from a 35mm Nitrate and a 16mm print

If anyone goes I would love to see photos of these, especially FRENCH FRIED!

Darn it, why do all of the best screenings of classic cartoons happen so far away from me!

Anyway, it's nice to see that a pre-code Terrytoon is going to be screened there. Those early sound Terrytoons (apart from the Gene Deitch shorts) have to be favorite era of Terrytoons.

So am I, but I would remain confident in the ability to see these in the future (JAPANESE LANTERNS is already on Steve's Rainbow Parades set looking very beautiful). Its just a matter of waiting as UCLA's channel has several stages of approval that need to be met before uploading. When UCLA uploaded a few cartoons last year, KOKO'S EARTH CONTROL was still in copyright and owned by Paramount, which makes me think we may see the Terrytoon and others in the future
