Tired of the slave-like treatment of his team's owner, charismatic star Negro League pitcher Bingo Long takes to the road with his band of barnstormers through the small towns of the Midwest in the 1930's.
Billy Dee Williams,
James Earl Jones,
This movie is about a close-knit group of employees who one day have all manner of strange visitors coming onto their forecourt, including Richard Pryor as a preaching "wonder-man" who is loved by most, but loathed by one, and a man who looks like a thief by the way he is holding his bottle, but it is really his urine sample as he is off to the hospital. T.C.'s love life takes a turn for the better, and the songs keep coming.Written by

Reverend Ike was a real-life preacher and inspiration for the Daddy Rich character. When Reverend Ike was unavailable for the film, they chose Richard Pryor, who filmed his role in two days. See more »
If you are watching this in the future, know that time has had its way with us, and that we knew it would. And it will with you. There is no escaping this. In a strange way, it's what makes life so beautiful and strange, that nothing alive stays the same.

Outstanding, lively, well-paced, good-humored and very, very funny ensemble comedy. It has hardly any plot, but lots of great characters, lots of good laughs that keep on coming, and some memorable moments. Some genuinely touching moments fit in well and don't derail the comedy. It has an award-winning sound-track, too.
