Guilty Pleasures

Like a box of the best sickly sweet chocolates, or digging out the 80’s back to school classics, Guilty Pleasure films are perfect for any occasions.

Ostensibly about an attempt to turn Helzapoppin’ the show into a backstage musical, this surreal, altogether avant-garde fantasia rings wild changes on the film-within-a-film format, beginning with an exasperated director shouting “Cut!” on an opening sequence set in hell.

Helzapoppin’ has an animation counterpart in Chuck Jones’s Duck Amuck (1953), in which Daffy Duck discovered the existential drawbacks of being a character in a cartoon.
