Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This New York underground film contains elements of the surreal and absurd. A Civil War soldier (Robert Downey) is shot in the posterior and finds himself wandering around New York in different time periods. He meets President James Garfield and his assassin. Documentary footage of the Vietnam War appears. A gangster turns out to be a priest, and his overweight female companion becomes a chimpanzee. Also, Allen Abel, president of the Society for Indecency to Naked Animals, gives a speech as to why the animals of the world should wear clothes. This offbeat film is a hilarious look at the lunatic fringe of society and was released in 55- and 52-minute versions.
