Dir. James Frawley. 1979, 95 mins. DCP. With Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz. Kermit the Frog makes his way from his humble origins in a Florida swamp to fabled Hollywood, assembling a team of friends as he goes, including Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and Gonzo. This enchanting and clever road movie, the first big-screen adventure for the Muppets, features delightful cameos from Madeline Kahn, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor, Orson Welles, and many others, and includes Kermit’s heart-tugging rendition of Paul Williams’s beloved, Oscar-nominated song “The Rainbow Connection.”
