Flyer for Jerry Beck's *Cartoons You Won't See on TV* at Club 57, 1980. The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Department of Film Special Collections

"Animation historian Jerry Beck has presented cartoon retrospectives for decades at international animation festivals, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, the American Cinematheque, and MoMA. But long before that, he started his curatorial career running 16mm prints of old Hollywood cartoons, straight from his personal collection, at Club 57, delighting the East Village new wave artists with what seemed like subversive material, as many of the classic cartoons he presented were slowly being removed from the public airwaves because they were outdated. For this program, Beck is re-creating the experience of being at the Club by having the 16mm projector inside the theater (outside the booth) and talking about the Club 57 experience between reels." – Jerry Beck
