DOCTOR DETROIT: Dan Aykroyd’s Cult Classic To Receive April Blu-ray Release!

DOCTOR DETROIT: Dan Aykroyd’s Cult Classic To Receive April Blu-ray Release!

He’s making the world safe…for insanity. On April 24, 2018, the cult comedy Doctor Detroit comes to Blu-ray for the first time, courtesy Shout Select.

Clifford Skridlow’s newest profession is the oldest profession in Doctor Detroit, a chaotic comedy starring the one and only Dan Aykroyd.

When fast-talking pimp Smooth Walker (Howard Hesseman, WKRP In Cincinnati) finds himself in hot water with Chicago crime boss Mom (Kate Murtagh), he claims that there’s a new player in the game: Doctor Detroit, a cat who’s badder than bad … and completely fictitious. In need of a patsy until the heat dies down, Smooth hits paydirt with mild-mannered professor Clifford Skridlow (Aykroyd) — and promptly skips town, leaving his bevy of sexy “employees” in Clifford’s hapless hands. Charmed by the ladies and spurred by his dedication to chivalry, Clifford agrees to become their protector and ally, transforming himself from a power-walking professor to a heroic hustler … and throwing down the gauntlet to save his college from financial ruin and the four damsels from the wrath of Mom!
