The whole neighborhood gets in on the search, leading a disorganized and uproarious search party. Les gets tips from some of the colorful locals, like Disco Bean, who apparently never got the memo that his favorite music (and fashion) was dead, and Colonel Ron, a crazed Vietnam vet who spends his time fishing for sneakers in the Gowanus Canal. Eventually, the F.B.I., the Catholic Church and even the Mob all join in the search for the elusive "One-Eye" Jimmy. This hilarious independent comedy, written and directed by Sam Henry Kass, was almost as lost as the film's title character, having been out of print since the days of VHS and finally making its debut on DVD and Blu-ray in a beautiful new transfer, restored and remastered in high definition.
