The late 60s/early 70s were the Golden Age of completely insane, incoherent, psychedelic movies, like Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls, Myra Breckinridge, Greaser’s Palace, Zardoz, and… Skidoo, featuring an all-star cast and directed by Otto Preminger, of all people.

Most of the aforementioned all-star cast had the good sense to be embarrassed, but Carol Channing appears to be having the time of her life.  Here she is in the second-most insane part of the film, singing the title song while wearing some kind of 18th-century-admiral-in-a-miniskirt outfit:

Have I mentioned that Carol Channing scares the living crap out of me?  Also, I would give almost anything for a copy of the mock commercial for an Elephant Man musical starring her and Anthony Newley (“in the role he was born to play”).
