This week's Black in the Days movie was a classic based upon the cast alone. Redd Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, Della Reese - you just couldn't have dreamed of a better cast to bring this funny throwback gangsta flick to life. "Harlem Nights" was funny, serious, and even dramatic.

This movie was one of the final films that Pryor would act in before his Multiple Sclerosis would debilitate him to the point where he was confined to a wheelchair. It was also Foxx's final film before he died in '91. And it was one of Eddie's last films where he had a cast that didn't consist of him playing every character in drag.
