So for today's Black in the Days throwback we have the movie "Greased Lightning" starring Richard Pryor and Pam Grier. I'm a major fan of Richard Pryor and his movie "Moving" is like my all time favorite movie. However, this movie I didn't get to see until recently when I discovered that I owned it by default as it came on the second side of my "Moving" dvd.
"Greased Lightning" is a pretty cool movie that tells a story loosely based on the life of the first black stock car racer in America, Wendell Scott. Richard was crazy as always in this and Pam got to show her soft side. I'm thinking this movie was made right around the time they used to date. If you want to check out some serious throwback theater, you should definitely rent this one. Richard is a hoot!
