Part live stand-up performance, part documentary, this film is one of comedian Richard Pryor's later stand-up performances. As foul-mouthed as ever, Pryor touches on most of the same topics as in his previous live shows.
What I remember most about this show is that at the end of introducing the cast at the beginning of the show, with the other dancers in the background, Lola's last line was: "and me, I'm Lola Falana". Then, in a split second, she seamlessly joined the other dancers (without turning around to see what the other dancers were doing) - like she had eyes in the back of her head. The dance number was usually something spectacular, fast, high-kick. Lola was always impeccably dressed, usually in a costume including a dance leotard, and absolutely dazzled. It's disheartening to hear that she's suffering from MS; a cruel fate for such a talented dancer. I can only offer my sincerest well wishes.
