Jim Henson's 11 Best Movies
Muppets Most Wanted isn't the only movie opening this week -- but it might as well be, at least for a generation of filmgoers who grew up watching Kermit and his pals on The Muppet Show, Sesame Street, and at the movies. In honor of all this Muppet love, we decided to spend this week's Total Recall paying tribute to the guy who brought them to life way back in the 1950s -- writer, director, performer, and puppeteer Jim Henson -- and, in particular, the studio he founded. Although Henson's role fluctuated from film to film, Henson's presence can be solidly felt in every Muppet-related movie -- even the ones made after his untimely death in 1990 -- and together, they form an enduring tribute to the power of imagination. Let's play the music, let's light the lights... it's time for Total Recall!
