Putney Swope

USA  ·  1969  ·  DCP  ·  Color and Black and White  ·  85'  ·  o.v. English

A subversive comedy that hinges on disjunctive dubbing of the main character’s voice by director Downey Sr.. The surreal clash of styles (and ethnicities) shapes this satire of the advertising industry.


Among the Unknown Pleasures of Locarno72. Carte blanche to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Film Archive with a newly restored film – world premiere of the restoration of “Putney Swope”. Restored by the Academy Film Archive and The Film Foundation with funding provided by the George Lucas Family Foundation.
