movie night tonight

the movie tonight, who framed roger rabbit?, was quite the wave-maker in the day, blending live-action and cartoon characters, and even featuring characters from several animation studios. it is also the last major voice role for legendary mel blanc, who passed away shortly after the film was made. fittingly enough, wikipedia tells us that several “easter eggs” were placed into the film. an easter egg, in this sense of the word, is not something the easter bunny lays, but an intentional hidden message.


as imdb states, “It’s the story of a man, a woman, and a rabbit in a triangle of trouble.” and “‘Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her. But the stakes are quickly raised when Marvin Acme is found dead and Roger is the prime suspect.”
