ONCE UPON A TIME … ON HOLLYWOOD BLVD
Double Feature!
DONKEY SKIN / TWICE UPON A TIME
DONKEY SKIN
PEAU D’ÂNE
1970, Janus Films, 90 min, France, Dir: Jacques Demy

Also known as ONCE UPON A TIME, Jacques Demy's strange, lovely film tells the story of a devoted king (Jean Marais) who promises his dying wife (Catherine Deneuve, a Demy favorite) that his new queen will be equal to her in beauty. Of course, no one can compare to Deneuve, which leaves the queen’s daughter (also played by Deneuve) as the sole contender. Heeding the advice of a bizarre fairy godmother (Delphine Seyrig), the princess delays her father's incestuous advances using a series of impossible dressmaking challenges. In French with English subtitles.


35 mm!

TWICE UPON A TIME
1983, Warner Bros., 75 min, USA, Dir: John Korty, Charles Swenson

In the city of Din, the Rushers work all day, the Figmen deliver sweet dreams all night, and the Murkworks try to muck up everyone’s fun by dropping nightmare bombs on the slumbering masses. When the leader of the Figmen is kidnapped, eternal screw-ups Ralph and Mumford can save the day and prove themselves unlikely heroes if they just shut down the Cosmic Clock and stop time long enough to rescue the hostage. Easy enough … now if they could just figure out how to get the Cosmic Clock started again! Executive produced by George Lucas, TWICE UPON A TIME is a radical collage of animation styles and live action footage unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
