Richard Pryor Film Collection: Car Wash/Stir Crazy/Brewsters Millions/Hear No Evil See No Evil - - £7.95 delivered @ DVD.co.uk !

Synopsis : Four features. In 'Car Wash' a juvenile, motley crew of Los Angeles city dwellers 'work their fingers to the bone' at Sully Boyar's car wash, waiting on the eccentric and sometimes haughty clientele. Throughout the day, the young men find time to indulge in personal pursuits: one fellow fantasises about the pretty waitress working at a local restaurant, a militant preaches politics, while more disgruntled workers find a way to justify their laziness. As the day wears on, the many levels of oppression that control each individual's lives gradually become apparent. Also includes 'Stir Crazy', 'Brewster's Millions' and 'See No Evil, Hear No Evil'.

Car Wash:
An earthy, irreverent but affectionate look at a typical day in Los Angeles car wash! An ensemble piece which interweaves the lives of employees, customers and passers-by, Car Wash stars a galaxy of gifted actors, most of whom are relatively unknown to movie goers, and spotlights an array of guest stars in vivid cameo roles, inculding George Carlin, "Professor" Irwin Corey, The Pointer Sisters, and Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich, a flamboyant Reverend who preaches the goodness of the dollar. Car Wash may qualify as the world's first "disco" movie, and Norman Whitfield's almost non-stop musical score has become a top selling album. Written by Joel Schumacher!

Stir Crazy:
Playwright Skip Donahue (Wilder) and actor Harry Monroe (Pryor) are out of work and penniless. Deciding they have had enough of Broadway, they set off to make their fortunes and find freedom down South. On the way, their funds get so low that they have to find work; as singing, dancing Woodpeckers promoting a bank. Plagued by bad luck, thieves steal their costumes and rob the bank, and guess who gets the blame and get put jail?

Brewster's Millions:
Brewster (Pryor), a lowly pitcher with the minor league Hackensack Bulls baseball team suddenly is left $300 million by a distant relative. But there's a catch; he must spend $30 million in thirty days without having any assets to show for it. And if he reveals it to a soul the real reason why he's throwing away all his cash, he will forfeit everything!

See No Evil Hear No Evil:
Two men are witness to a murder - a blind man who couldn't see it and a deaf man who couldn't hear it, but somehow they become prime suspects in the case. They escape the police and set out to catch the bad guy themselves!

great set. got mine from musiczone before they closed for £4. good price

See No Evil Hear No Evil.........Classic:-D
Worth it on its own.

I remember seeing the original Richard Pryor live in Concert film which was from about 79 and laughing my ass off. A friend used to have the record and he’d stick it on and we’d use the sleeve for ‘alternative purposes’. :whistling:
I watched it again fairly recently and was surprised to see how much he’d influenced Bill Hicks even down to the mannerisms that he used. I was lucky enough to see Bill Hicks a couple of times with the first time being a highlight of any gig etc that I’ve seen, which have been many. Funny dudes.

Stir Crazy is great too...

Great shame he went off the rails...

Stir Crazy is a fantastic film. The one I'd love to see though, is Moving (about him buying a house). I've looked on ebay in the past and the VHS copies go for a fair few quid.

Wish I knew a friend who could download one or rip me a copy and then drop me a PM so I could send them my address!:whistling:

Hizz

It’s available on Amazon UK as part of a double film DVD; it’s region 1 only though.

If you've got a mutliregion DVD player you can get the region 1 (USA) version of Moving together with Greased Lightning for £5.44 inc p&p from a good Marketpalce seller on Amazon.co.uk.
