In Greaser's Palace, Alan Arbus plays a zoot-suited character named Jesse, who is not only a Christlike figure, he is Christ. En route to Jerusalem, where he hopes to find work as a "singer-dancer-actor," Jesse finds himself in a dusty western town. At first, he is targeted for extermination by town boss Seaweedhead Greaser (Albert Henderson) but all this changes when he brings Greaser's son Lamy (Michael Sullivan) back from the dead. Jesse's healing powers lead to all sorts of wacked-out complications and, inevitably, a bizarre confrontation with the town looney, exotic dancer Cholera (Luana Anders). A very young Robert Downey Jr. (the son of the director) appears as a Quasimodo-like child.
