Robert Downey, Sr.’s brilliant 1969 cultural satire has been directly cited as an influence on comedians and filmmakers alike, including Eddie Murphy, Jim Jarmusch, the Coen Brothers, Boots Riley, and Paul Thomas Anderson—who even used Downey as an actor in BOOGIE NIGHTS and MAGNOLIA.
With PUTNEY SWOPE opening this Wednesday and in spirit of that memorable collaboration, we’d like share this conversation with Paul Thomas Anderson and Robert Downey, Sr. discussing the enduring legacy of the film.
