The movie is referenced in the beginning of the music video "Let Me Ride" by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. In the video, Dre is in his home watching the $20 Sack Pyramid (a track skit from the album shown as a game show in the video) on TV, and the answer to one question is "Things Dolemite would say". The song "Nuthin' But a G Thang" includes the line, "Pimpin' hoes and clockin' a grip like my name was Dolemite." See more »
Towards the beginning, when Dolemite is out of jail and his girls are driving him home, a group of men pull next to his car, get out, and go straight to his car. Later, when Dolemite shoots the bad guys and drives off, the car is at least 25 feet ahead of where the bad guys stopped. See more »

Rudy Ray Moore movies: He's bad! The man is out of sight...
Dolelemite (1975) is a cult classic. Starring Rudy Ray Moore as the pimp superhero out to wrong rights whilst challenging the MAN along the way. He has two enemies, that no good Willie Green and the sleazy mayor. Watch Dolemite kick, punch, slap and pimp his way across the screen. What's the man's name? DOLEMITE!
Interesting film that paved the way for a generation of rappers and performers. To sell more of his party albums, Rudy Ray Moore made several on the cheap films during the seventies. Self produced and marketed he catered towards a specific audience. Some people call it blacksploitation others call it trash, I call it entertaining. Dolemite was followed by the semi-sequel The Human Tornado and a direct to video Return of Dolemite 25 years later.
Highly recommended, a definite cult classic!
Footnotes, if the film was properly matted on video you wouldn't see the boom mikes. Dolemite was cut to receive an R-rating.
