Car Wash

1976 / 97min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL SCHULTZ

CAST: RICHARD PRYOR, DARROW IGUS, OTIS DAY, GEORGE CARLIN

Unfolding over the course of a very eventful workday at a Los Angeles car wash, Schultz’s bumptious, rough-edged, diverse ensemble comedy is infected throughout with waiting-for-the-weekend energy courtesy of Rose Royce’s disco-funk soundtrack. Los Angeles in miniature, this was the auspicious start to a multi-film collaboration between Richard Pryor and Schultz (Which Way is Up will screen in Part Two).
