Did You Know?

Goofs

Dolemite gets into Bo's car naked with his hat and clothes in his hands. The next shot shows him almost completely dressed, even though the car is still close enough to the house to be hit by gunfire from the sheriff's men, so only a few seconds could have elapsed; it's seriously doubtful that he could have gotten dressed this quickly while sharing the backseat with another passenger.

Rudy Ray Moore Movies: He's the Human Tornado! Rattlesnakes bite me they just crawl up and die.

Human Tornado (1976) is in many ways a better film than it's predecessor. The director knew what he had to work with and catered towards Rudy Ray Moore's limitations as an actor. It's a fun movie that's more technically sound and acted. The performers don't take themselves too seriously and it seems that this time around everyone is on the joke and goes with the flow. Rudy Ray Moore seems more relaxed in front of the camera and not as stiff like he was in Dolemite.

I enjoyed the film very much and I highly recommend it. Just like his first film, it's catered towards a certain audience (I highly doubt that Mr. Moore was trying to broaden his audience at this point in his career). Check it out!

Highjly recommended.
