United States 1988 104 mins.

A private dick (played with gruff sincerity by the late Bob Hoskins), whose life has been ruined by ’toons, is forced to harbor a wacky rabbit superstar on the run in this live-action/animation hybrid that’s a rollicking send-up of film noir tropes, beginning with blackmail and leading to takes on the wrong man plot and the best “shave and a haircut” bit in Hollywood history. And then there’s an indelible femme fatale (voiced by Kathleen Turner) at the center of it all. Best of all, if you keep your eyes peeled, you’re bound to catch outrageous cameos from famous ’toon characters throughout the film.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
