Newly Restored  Films of Robert Downey Sr.

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

This highly influential, razor-sharp cultural satire from Robert Downey Sr. shows the very funny social fallout that results when the only black member of the board of a lily-white ad agency takes over and makes some needed adjustments in attitude.


PUTNEY SWOPE remains Downey’s most popular effort, a cult classic that has gone from midnight-movie sensation to rental standby.”Michael Koresky, The Current

“I am quite certain that PUTNEY SWOPE is the funniest, the most absurd and the most intelligent film that you will see this week and next week and the week after.” – Jonas Mekas, Village Voice
