Clyde Williams and Billy Foster are a couple of blue-collar workers in Atlanta who have promised to raise funds for their fraternal order, the Brothers and Sisters of Shaka. However, their method for raising the money involves travelling to New Orleans and rigging a boxing match. Using hypnotism, they turn the scrawny underdog into a super-confident fighting machine. They bet heavily on him, he wins easily, and they return to Atlanta with their money. All is fine until the gangsters conned by these two figure out what happened show up in Atlanta with a grudge. Now Williams and Foster have to rig the fight again so the gangsters can get their money back or they'll be killed. Can they do it again...?Written by
I'm a Dramatic Writing student at NYU and Richard Wesley is our chair! I took his Film Story Analysis class this semester which was a lot of fun (movies every week!) and today was the last class so he showed this film of his. (We all stayed past the end of class to finish it.) Haha I loved it so much and couldn't even tell it was from the 70's. Such timeless humor. I also didn't know that Richard invented the name "Biggie Smalls" which was too cool. All year he showed us films in order to show how professionals work their screenplays, but he saved the best for last! Thanks Wesley for your awesome movie and class! See you tomorrow! Haha.
