HUBLEY CLASSICS – John & Faith Hubley’s Oscar-winning Animated Legacy – Restored 35mm prints!

Hubley Classics

The husband-and-wife team of John and Faith Hubley brought a humanistic perspective and a distinctly modern style to postwar American animation. The films they made together, and independently, influenced a generation of independent animators worldwide and earned many honors, including three Academy Awards. Selected in collaboration with the Hubley family (daughter Emily is also a distinguished animator) to honor John Hubley’s (1914-1977) centennial, the sparkling new 35mm prints of these innovative, visually striking classics (a handful among dozens of brilliant films)—THE ADVENTURES OF AN * (1957), THE TENDER GAME (1958), MOONBIRD (1959), THE HAT (1964), URBANISSIMO (1967), WINDY DAY (1968), OF MEN AND DEMONS (1969), and EGGS (1971)—address a wide range of topics, from urbanization and overpopulation to two boys’ search for a pet bird, and feature the voices of Dizzy Gillespie, Dudley Moore, and the Hubleys’ children, as well as music from Benny Carter, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. (80 mins.)
