Item Description
ROBERT DOWNEY'S (CHAFED ELBOWS, PUTNEY SWOPE, POUND, etc.) CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED 1972 FILM "GREASER'S PALACE" IS ONE OF THE MOST ORGINAL, BIZARRE, HILARIOUS, & UNFORGETTABLE FILMS YOU'LL EVER SEE. THIS AUDACIOUS SOCIAL SATIRE POKES FUN AT JUST ABOUT EVERY SACRED COW WITH GREAT GUSTO, A HIGHLY DEVELOPED SENSE OF THE ABSURD, AND A GOOD MEASURE A SLAPSTICK. IN A FILM THAT MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED, THE STORY OF CHRIST'S SUFFERINGS IS SET IN THE OLD WEST. A ZOOT-SUITED DRIFTERS PERFORMS MIRACLES AND SOON ATTRACTS A LARGE FOLLOWING. HEALING THE SICK AND WALKING ON WATER IS ALL FINE AND GOOD...BUT WHAT HE REALLY WANTS TO DO IS SING AND DANCE!! HE FINALLY GETS TO PLAY THE PALACE, A SALON RUN BY THE RUTHLESS SEAWEEDHEAD GREASER, AND HE'S A BIG HIT. BUT HE'S GOT MORE MIRACLES TO DO, LIKE RESTROING LIFE TO GREASER'S SON...WHO WAS KILLED BY HIS FATHER AFTER HE WAS SUSPECTED HE WAS A "HOMO". NOT TO MENTION CONTENDING WITH GREASER'S ENVIOUS DAUGHTER CHOLERA WHO PROCLAIMS: "A MAN WHIT HOLES IN HIS HANDS IS A BIGGER HIT THAN ME ?". THE WINNER OF THE OUTSTANDING FILM AWARD AT THE 1972 LONDON FILM FESTIVAL "GREASER'S PALACE" CONTINUES TO SHOCK AND DELIGHT TODAY'S AUDIENCES WITH IT'S DERANGED INVENTIVENESS AND COMPULSIVE WATCHABILTY. A+ QUALITY LETTERBOXED PRINT TOO!ships in a plain sleev w/ no artwork
