Product Description

GREASER'S PALACE In Robert Downey Sr.'s Greaser's Palace, Alan Arbus plays a zoot-suited character named Jesse, who is not only a Christlike figure, he is Christ. En route to Jerusalem, where he hopes to find work as a "singer-dancer-actor," Jesse finds himself in a dusty western town. At first, he is targeted for extermination by town boss Seaweedhead Greaser (Albert Henderson) but all this changes when he brings Greaser's son Lamy (Michael Sullivan) back from the dead. Jesse's healing powers lead to all sorts of wacked-out complications and, inevitably, a bizarre confrontation with the town looney, exotic dancer Cholera (Luana Anders). A very young Robert Downey Jr. (the son of the director) appears as a Quasimodo-like child. FEATURES: Brand New 16x9 (1:78) anamorphic widescreen, first time anywhere in the world! Brand New Interview With Director Robert Downey Liner Note By Jonathan Demme Region 0, NTSC DVD

Cela faisait plusieurs années que je recherchais le film. Je me souvenais du synopsis... Le film est bien celui que j'avais vu dans les années 70.

HASH(0x8ea8733c) out of 5 stars Get Ready For This One! 7 Jun. 2000
By Brian F. McGee - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is amazing. Amazing in the way it effects people. One in five will love it, the other four will hate it, all five will never stop talking about it. I saw this movie when it hit the theaters in NYC in 1970. I, as everybody else in the theater, was confused. For some reason we thought the movie was a fifties revival movie. No one was prepared to see a return of Jesus to the wild west. I bought a copy of this movie and view it at least once a year. It takes me a year to recover. After viewing it many times with others, the power of this movie never fails to exert itself on it's viewers. I have aquaintances who saw this move over twelve years ago. They still bring it up (or blame me for it) when they see me now. About four years ago I read the Bagavad Gita a number of times. One of the many insights I enjoyed was .... "what Greasers Palace was about." After viewing this movie numerous times since 1970, I finally got it. It is worth getting and viewing this movie and trying to figure out why it upsets people so much. Greasers Palace does something to dig into the psyche. When I watch Mick Jagger in the movie "Performance," I wonder how that movie could have become the leading cause of in-theater violence in U.S. movie history. Like "Greasers Palace," it makes you wonder.

HASH(0x8ea87588) out of 5 stars Instant B-fest Classic! 1 Mar. 2001

I had the extreme pleasure of seeing this film at A&O Films B-fest 2001. Wow! It's so hard to describe, but if you're into strange things this is a definite must see. It is guaranteed to mess with your head and keep you begging for more. When I tell people about this movie they just don't believe me. Yes, there really is a mariachi band playing every time that guy goes to the toilet!

HASH(0x8ea877c8) out of 5 stars Thank you Mr Greaser 2 Feb. 2011

I have seen this film probably fifty plus times. Many of those times were at the midnight $1.00 showing at George Eliots's Film Forum in Atlanta, when it first came out and later, circa 1972-1975. My crowd is still quoting lines from this film 40 years later. What that says about us, I can't imagine. What it says about the movie is: see it!! The reviewer who pointed out about five viewers seeing it, one liking, four hating, all talking about it, that is very true.

RIP Bestoink Dooley!

HASH(0x8ea8796c) out of 5 stars LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie which is so rare to find the great classic cult ever! 9 April 2013

I love this movie. So artistic and so very very different. My husband watched it and just sat there with a blank face. My brother introduced this movie to me when they were selling them in little vhs shops. My eyes were glued to this movie. I couldn't stop watching it and watch it over and over. As I said, the best cult classic of all time. My 16 year old watched it for five minutes and couldn't understand any of it's concept and walked out of the room like most teenagers do but as he gets older, he will see "the light" and "come to his senses" !!! Thanks for offering it online because that is the only place i found it was on Amazon!! Thanks!! Susie W.

By Movie Rubberneck - Published on
Format: DVD
You just can't help but want to watch more. I mean, this movie is soo weird you keep asking yourself "Is this for real, are they serious?!" My favorite quote in this movie was definitly by Alan Alda...or is it Arkin...anyway "What's going down here?" and you'll trully be asking yourself that as you watch this oddity.
