Product Description:

For years, Putney Swope has been the only black executive at a major Madison Avenue advertising firm, and he's seen it all: the ins and outs of an industry that has unapologetically relegated people of color to the commercial margins. When a twist of fate lands him in the executive's chair, Swope is determined to make some significant changes. He starts by transforming a previously all-white board room into an all-black meeting of dashiki-clad, Afro-sporting "brothers and sisters." But before long, Swope's ideas start to go stale--his plan to shake things up does little more than invert Madison Avenue's hierarchical structure--and all hell breaks loose. PUTNEY SWOPE is a loose, freewheeling satire on '60s corporate America from Robert Downey, Sr., arguably the master of underground film.
