More than 125 hand-drawn artwork pieces from such animated films as "Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," "Alice in Wonderland," "101 Dalmatians" and "The Lion King" will go on display in the lobby of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Goldwyn Theatre on May 16 as part of an exhibition titled "Ink & Paint: The Art of Hand-Drawn Animation." The work ranges from storyboards and color keys to layouts and cels.
The Canadian reporter known as the "Scud Stud" during the 1991 Gulf War has sued the makers of "Charlie Wilson's War" over footage used in the movie. Arthur Kent, whose live NBC reports on Iraq's Scud missile attacks on Saudi Arabia made him a celebrity, claims in a federal lawsuit filed last week that filmmakers violated his intellectual property rights, saying that Universal and other companies used parts of a 1986 news program he made about the Soviet Union's war in Afghanistan without his consent.
WHAT'S UP, DOCS?
As part of the Academy's Contemporary Documentaries series, "The U.S. vs. John Lennon" and "Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man" will screen Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.
