Babo 73

Directed by Robert Downey Sr. • 1964 • United States

Taylor Mead plays the president of the United Status, who, when he isn't at the White House, a dilapidated Victorian, conducts his top-secret affairs on a deserted beach. Robert Downey Sr.’s first feature is a rollicking, slapstick, ultra-low-budget 16 mm comedy experiment that introduced a twisted new voice to the New York underground.

Preserved by Anthology Film Archives, with funding provided by The Film Foundation.
