You'll laugh so hard, that you'll cry ... long before there was 'Living Color,' 'Saturday Night Live,' and 'Mad TV,' there was 'Putney Swope.' It's really too bad that Robert Downey Sr. never had another commercial success. In many ways, Downey Sr. is the anti-Ed Woods--i.e., someone with real talent who has created films that are truly honest and faithful to his own vision.
