Richard Pryor Drives ‘Em Wild
In his first lead role, Richard Pryor plays Wendell Scott, the first black to crack the all-white world of stock car racing, who went on to win the NASCAR and Grand National Crowns. This decades-spanning story shows Scott enduring racial slurs, matching heavily sponsored rivals with cars built from junkyard parts, and surviving crashes engineered by redneck competitors to triumph at the finish.

From the box:
“The looniest, nuttiest, most outrageous movie musical comedy in years.”
Business is blooming at Mushnik’s Flower Shop. Customers are rushing in to see the exotic potted plant called Audrey II. But if they knew the truth, they’d rush right out. Audrey II is more vampire than vegetable. It’s a “mean, green mother from outer space” who’s about to fill Mushnik’s little shop with kooky horrors.
