Film version of Melvin Van Peebles' Broadway musical. A pair of devil-bats take human form and crash a Harlem house party in an attempt to break it up. But somehow, their attempts to ruin the party fail.
I played the Prosecuting Attorney in the Courtroom scene ,,,"nip this in the bud" was one of my lines that became a byword around the set after that scene was filmed. Phillip Michael Thomas and Denise Gordy were very nice people, young "comers", as it were, at the time. It's a shame the film never saw wide release---at the time I think it might have had something to do with this being St. Jacques's first directorial/producing effort, he went over budget and over time, I think, and only finished it with enormous help from Marty Hornstein who replaced Clyde Houston (who got me into it way above my skill level---I was an actor, but Clyde also used me as location, car, and general Texas wrangler) as AD. Brut Productions, the money guys, had some issues with Raymond (which wouldn't have been hard to do), and that probably caused some editing and/or release problems. It was a full script, with a good story---I have no idea why it ran so short. I never saw even a rough cut.
