At one point, the New York Times called the film as the "Citizen Kane" of Blaxploitation (Black Exploitation films). See more »
After Willie Green's henchmen shoot Creeper/Hamburger Pimp, Dolemite grabs a pistol, and shoots one of the henchmen in the chest at close range. The angle of the gun is at least 30 degrees off from where the bullet hole appears in the henchman, and the henchman goes down anyway. See more »

"Tell him I want him out of here in 24 hours...and 23 of um's already gone."
Blaxploitation "classic" that introduced the movie-going public to Rudy Ray Moore. The plot, such as it is, has pimp Dolemite (Moore) being framed and sent to prison. A friendly warden believes Dolemite is innocent, so he lets him out of prison to prove it (!). Dolemite sets out to take back control of his pimp business and get revenge against the man who set him up: Willie Greene (D'Urville Martin, also the director).
If you're unfamiliar with Rudy Ray Moore, this is as good a place to start as any. Dolemite features the standards of every Moore film: inept direction, unintentionally hilarious fight scenes, and the worst excuse for acting you'll ever see. Not to mention more colorful ways to fit the word 'mothereffer' into a sentence than I ever thought possible. A fun game to play while watching this cheapie is "spot the boom mic."
