Tired of today's baseball strikes, artificial turf, domed stadiums and millionaire players? Take a trip back to simpler times, when a black baseball team, the Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings, blended comedy skits and baseball skills during the days of "color barriers" in the major leagues. Bingo (Billy Dee Williams), Leon (James Earl Jones) and Charlie (Richard Pryor), star players in the Negro National League, break away from their tyrannical black bosses and form their own razzle-dazzle team. Barnstorming across the Depression-era Midwest, the All-Stars take on local teams of all sizes and colors, contend with bigotry -- and discover that their worst enemies are their own former owners. Good-natured and funny -- yet touching on serious themes -- The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings is the stuff American legends are made of.
|Original theatrical release 1976.|
