What do you get when you make a counterculture film with Jackie Gleason, Carol Channing, Groucho Marx, Frankie Avalon and Mickey Rooney?

An empty theater of course, but somebody thought Skidoo (1968) was a good idea.....

Complete with a Harry Nilsson soundtrack......
Here's Jackie Gleason on an acid trip.....

  1. Wow... oh wow. That looks so indescribably awful I bet it never made it to DVD. (I'm sure it skipped VHS. And Betamax.) Don't look that up - I'm REALLY not interested.

    Someone musta had some real dirt on Jackie Gleason - and Carol Chaning - and Groucho Marx - and maybe even Otto Preminger - in order to blackmail them into doing this movie. Frankie Avalon didn't have a career left by this point in time - at least that one makes sense.
