Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd: Save the Dolphins PSA

Jennifer Aniston, Woody Harrelson, Paul Rudd, Ben Stiller, Robin Williams are some of the celebrities featured in this clip promoting the end of dolphin hunting in Japan. This PSA was inspired by Louie Psihoyos’ Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove, which focuses on the massacre of dolphins in the Japanese fishing town of Taiji. Dolphins are not only better looking, but I have no doubt they’re also more intelligent, more compassionate, and have a higher sense of ethics than most human beings out there.

Charles Chaplin’s THE CIRCUS, ALADDIN, EASY RIDER Screenings

circusAmong the upcoming screenings in the November film series of the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation in Culpeper, Va., are vehicles for just about everyone, from Charles Chaplin to Dennis Hopper; from Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland to Robin Williams’ voice. I’ve never seen Disney’s Aladdin, though I know it was a big hit when it came out. Robin Williams was particularly praised for his voice work as the Genie — some even went as far as to demand that the Academy come up with Oscars for best voice performance.
