U.S. film. Letterbox format. Complete. Un-Cut. Perfect quality! Absolutely bizarre and unbelievable 1960's LSD, hippie, counter-culture movie featuring incredibly famous "straight" actors all tripping their brains out on acid! Huh? It's true!
Jackie Gleason plays a retired San Francisco hit man-turned-car wash owner and Carol Channing plays his daffy wife. Gleason soon finds himself on a mission from God. God is the head of the local mob and played by Groucho Marx! Gleason is ordered by God to get himself arrested and sent to Alcatraz, where he is to do a hit on a former gangster who turned informer. Unfortunately for Gleason, his target (played by Mickey Rooney) is in ultra-tight protective custody. Unable to fulfill his assignment and stuck in Alcatraz on a bogus rap, Gleason finds an escape by accident: he shares a cell with a draft-dodging writer who laced the glue of his stationery envelopes with LSD!
You haven't lived until you've seen Jackie Gleason on LSD! Talk about "and away we go!" Rather than give more of the plot away, let's just say, "You've got to see this film!" Jackie Gleason, Groucho Marx, Carol Channing, Frankie Avalon, Mickey Rooney, Peter Lawford, Richard Kiel, Slim Pickens, Frank Gorshin, Burgess Meredith, Caesar Romero, George Raft, Arnold Stang, Harry Nilsson (Nilsson also composed soundtrack), and many others! Directed by Otto Preminger who was experimenting with LSD (along with Grouch Marx) during the film-making—and it shows! Skidoo!
