Directed by Sidney Poitier | 1974

With Sidney Poitier, Bill Cosby, Harry Belafonte, Flip Wilson, Richard Pryor

"A virtuoso sendup of 'Shaft'-style cool"
—The New York Times

This groovy caper comedy stars Poitier and Cosby as two blue-collar stiffs who get held up at a nightclub and dive headlong into Chicago’s underworld in search of a stolen wallet with a winning lotto ticket. Along the trail they meet Rev. Flip Wilson and his congregation, an acrobatic pint-sized gangster (Harold Nicholas, of the Nicholas Brothers), and a twitchy huckster private eye named Sharp Eye Washington—played by none other than Pryor himself.
