Who Framed Roger Rabbit
DIRECTOR: ROBERT ZEMECKIS
CAST: BOB HOSKINS, CHRISTOPHER LLOYD, KATHLEEN TURNER
A perverse mashup of Chinatown conspiracy and Merrie Melodies, Zemeckis’s groundbreaking live-action/animation hybrid takes place in a 1947 Los Angeles where cartoon film stars inhabit their own neighborhood. When Toontown is threatened by malevolent forces, film noir-worthy detective Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) and animated A-lister Roger Rabbit must team to ferret out the culprits. With Christopher Lloyd as the hanging judge who’s hot to prosecute Roger for a frame-up murder, and Kathleen Turner giving sultry voice to one of the ‘80s defining sex symbols, the va-va-voom Jessica Rabbit.
