Skidoo (1968) DVD
It's mobsters vs. hippies in director Otto Preminger's psychedelic cult comedy. Ex-gangster Tony Banks (Jackie Gleason), sent behind bars at Alcatraz to bump off a stoolie (Mickey Rooney), takes an accidental LSD trip and hatches a wild escape plan. While Tony's away, his wife (Carol Channing) allows their daughter's "flower power" pals to move into the family mansion. Amazing ensemble cast also includes Frankie Avalon, Frank Gorshin, and Groucho Marx (in his final film role). 98 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
