Putney Swope (1969)

Director: Robert Downey Sr.

Arnold Johnson stars as the title character, Putney Swope, a black advertising executive. The film satirizes the advertising world, the portrayal of race in Hollywood films, the white power structure, and the nature of corporate corruption. In 2016, the film was selected for preservation in the US National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
