Robert Downey Sr. delivers strange laughs in a comical surreal western.
"Greasers Palace" is a wacky and strange western filled with uneasy laughter. In the 70's, Robert Downey Sr. was known for his strange and bizarre humor. At times certain jokes make absolutely no sense. That's what makes his films so funny. The story concerns a Christ like man in a zoot suit, named Jesse. He's on his way to Jerusalem to be a singer. On the way viewers are introduced to many strange characters; a guy in a ghost suit, a man dressed as a nun, and a women who repeatedly gets shot. Jesse wants to sing at the Greaser's Palace lounge. The evil Seaweedhead Greaser and his daughter preside over the palace. They are very picky on who can preform there. Sr. Greasers son is accused of being gay and is killed by his father. Thank goodness for Jesse's miraculous powers as he's able to revive Sr. Greaser's son from the dead time and time again. In some aspects the film appears to be a parody of El Topo. It also has a Montey Python style of humor and wit. Who can forget the films outrageous musical numbers too? So if your looking for a strange, nonsensical, religious, western comedy; Greaser's Palace is a film you'll most likely enjoy!
