The Truth & Soul Movie

A hallmark of 1960s radicalism and one of the first underground films, Robert Downey Sr.'s seminal PUTNEY SWOPE remains a classic of social satire. After the CEO croaks during a boardroom meeting at a Madison Avenue ad agency, members trying to sabotage each other's chance of winning the top spot all vote for the token black guy - Putney Swope. Swope swoops into action - firing them all and replacing them with armed radicals, soul brothers and sexy red-hot mamas. Renaming the agency "Truth and Soul," Putney sets about revolutionizing the corporate world of advertising: banning the marketing of products such as cigarettes, alcohol and violent toys. The agency produces raucous, kooky TV spots - offensive, humorous and, at first, wildly successful. But can "Truth and Soul" last, not only in advertising, but within Putney himself?
