The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings

A solid extra-base hit.

Following ballplayers prevented from playing in the majors by the color line, this mix of humor and social commentary is a good day at the movie ballpark.

Teaming up before they later collected those sweet, sweet Stars Wars paychecks, Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones are the headliners.

But it’s Richard Pryor who steals every scene he’s in as a stat-obsessed player.

Bouncing along county backroads, not getting the respect they deserve, our heroes seize the day, turning what could have been a broken-bat single of a film into a solid double through sheer effort.
