See these films: Muppet Movie Marathon @ the Brattle

The Great Muppet Caper

Muppet movies have traditionally been the preferred alternative to The Hollywood Squares for stars on the wane, and as such they makes for classic cinema, as can be seen in today's Brattle Theatre tripleheader. Dom DeLuise and Orson Welles co-star with Kermit the Frog in The Muppet Movie (1978); John Cleese and Diana Rigg share the screen with Miss Piggy in The Great Muppet Caper (1981); and Joan Rivers and Liza Minnelli compare styling tips with Fozzie Bear in The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984). If only Paul Lynde had done the same.
