Sell! Sell! Sell!: The Commercials of Jim Henson


With archivist Karen Falk in person

Jim Henson Company Archivist Karen Falk presents commercials and industrial films created by Jim Henson in the 1950s and 1960s, including irreverent and award-winning spots for Wilkins Coffee, Purina, La Choy, IBM, and more. These commercials introduced such irresistible and enduring characters as Rowlf the Dog, Delbert the La Choy Dragon, and Sir Linit. Karen Falk is the author of Imagination Illustrated: The Jim Henson Journal and will sign books after the screening.
