Comic superstars Richard Pryor and George Carlin join musical guests like the Pointer Sisters in the incredible ensemble cast of this urban comedy about a day in the life at L.A.'s Dee-Luxe Car Wash. There, a drag queen, a revolutionary, an ex-con, an Afro-wannabe, a suspected bomber (Irwin Corey) and a cabbie (Carlin) chasing a fare-beater all come together in soul and song-filled fun. Pryor, who worked with the director Michael Schultz again on Greased Lightning and Which Way Is Up? the following year, plays Daddy Rich, a flamboyant Reverend who preaches the goodness of the dollar. Car Wash features Ivan Dixon ("Hogan's Heroes"), blaxploitation star Antonio Fargas (Shaft, Foxy Brown), Garrett Morris of "Saturday Night Live" and the hit title song by Rose Royce.
