1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rudy Ray Moore began his film career in 1974 as the star and producer of Dolemite, financed with profits from his bestselling party records. Dolemite, a famous nightclub entertainer, joins forces with Queen Bee (Lady Reed) and an All-Girl Army of Kung Fu killers to take on mobsters Willy Green and Mr. Big. With it's combination of martial arts action sequences, over-the-top sex scenes and Rudy Ray's special brand of "blue" humor, "Dolemite" became an enormous underground hit in 1975. This led to the sequel, "The Human Tornado" (1976), reunited Dolemite with Queen Bee and her girls. "Petey Wheatstraw: The Devil's Son-In-Law" (1977) was based on an old African American legend of a man who agrees to marry the Devil's daughter in exchange for great power. Featuring a cast of Rudy Ray's colleagues from his nightclub days, including Leroy and Skillet, Jimmy Lynch and Wildman Steve, along with a bevy of special effects, this proved to be the most ambitious of the series. "Disco Godfather" (a.k.a., The Avenging Disco Godfather) (1979), was Rudy Ray's final action comedy, telling the story of a cop-turned-DJ who is called back into action to take down an angel dust ring. "Rude" (1983) is Rudy Ray's first live-concert film, and features his longtime opening act, Leroy and Skillet
