Directed by Michael Schultz | 1977

With Richard Pryor, Lonette McKee, Margaret Avery, Morgan Woodward, Marilyn Coleman

"One truly great comedy"
—The New York Times

This offbeat political satire, a remake of Lina Wertmüller’s 1972 film The Seduction of Mimi, kicks into gear when Pryor’s clueless fruit picker becomes an accidental hero of the California labor movement. While appearing as the film’s hero, Leroy Jones, Leroy’s father, and a randy reverend—shades of Eddie Murphy—Pryor plays multiple roles in more ways than one, as Leroy finds himself frantically shuttle between two women and two lives, management and labor.
