To handle what director Joe Layton
calls "Richard's marvelous craziness", Layton ordered six cameras to cover Pryor. Four were on crab dollys, with two manned by mobile operators ready for the unexpected. Layton said: "And as added protection, we equipped each motion picture camera with a video camera so that I was able to monitor, instantaneously, everything he was doing on stage". See more
When I was in Africa, this voice came to me and said, "Richard, what do you see?" I said, "I see all types of people." The voice said, "But do you see any niggers?" I said, "No." It said, "Do you know why? 'Cause there aren't any."
