'Dolemite'

Hardboiled! concludes over at Trailers from Hell, with John Landis introducing 1975's "Dolemite," which he describes as "embarrassingly entertaining, 'Dolemite' is like a comic book version of a blaxploitation film."

Written, produced by and starring the incomparable expletivist “adults only” comedian Rudy Ray Moore, Dolemite hits all the lurid cliches of the blaxploitation genre and keeps beating them to a pulp till the audience is too dizzy to do anything but laugh. Moore also takes credit for the film’s set decoration, although perennial second banana D’Urville Martin directs. The late Rudy has his own website here. Larry Karaszewski’s take on the sequel The Human Tornado can be seen here
