CAR WASH
1976, Universal, 97 min, USA, Dir: Michael Schultz

A disco flurry of afros, bell-bottoms and big boat cars, this classic comedy takes place at the DeLuxe car wash. Among the most memorable visitors to the establishment are Daddy Rick (Richard Pryor), the Taxi Driver (George Carlin) and the Mad Bomber (Professor Irwin Corey). With a Top 10 hit title song by Rose Royce. “It's one thing to have an idea like this - a zany, sometimes serious day in the life of a car wash - and another thing to make it work. But the screenplay and the direction juggle the characters so adroitly, this is almost a wash-and-wax MASH.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
