‘The Night They Raided Minsky’s,’ an LES Camp Classic

This campy 1968 ode to living la vida loca on the Lower East Side is such a spectacularly cartoonish misfire you can't miss it: Swedish bombshell (and former Bond girl) Britt Ekland plays the naïve and impressionable Amish dancer who is mesmerized by the bright lights of the city and determined to grasp that brass ring (or pole). She finds happiness in a downtown burlesque club, while hams Jason Robards, Elliott Gould, Norman Wisdom, and Bert Lahr manically shuck and jive.
