    On 11/23, Scorpion Releasing proudly presents cult director Robert Downey's GREASERS PALACE on DVD! Robert Downey's critically acclaimed GREASER'S PALACE is one of the most original, bizarre, hilarious, unforgettable films that you'll ever see. This audacious social satire...even more riotous than Downey's PUTNEY SWOPE... pokes fun at just about every sacred cow with great gusto, a highly developed sense of the absurd, and a good measure of slapstick.

    In a film that must be seen to be believed, the story of Christ's sufferings is set in the Old West. A zoot-suited drifter (ALAN ARBUS - DAMIEN OMEN 2, CISCO PIKE) performs miracles and attracts a large following. But what he really wants to do is sing and dance! He finally gets to play The Palace, a saloon run by the ruthless Seaweedhead Greaser, and he's a big hit. But he's got more miracles to restoring life to Greaser's son who was killed by his father, and contending with Greaser's envious daughter Cholera (LUANA ANDERS - THE KILLING KIND, THE LAST DETAIL).

    Voted one of TIME MAGAZINE's top ten films of 1972, the award-winning GREASER'S PALACE continues to shock and delight today's audiences with its deranged inventiveness and compulsive watchability. Also starring cult actors Herve Villechaize (FORBIDDEN ZONE, FANTASY ISLAND), Toni Basil (pop singer "Mickey") and a early role for Robert Downey Jr. (IRON MAN, SHERLOCK HOLMES). Scorpion Releasing is proud to present this cult classic, finally in 16x9 widescreen for the first time anywhere in the world!
