Watched Car Wash yesterday and i thought that it was a great one day movie. Good cast, funny one-liners and cool, funky music.
It was directed by Michael Schultz and written by Joel Schumacher.
Car Wash is an episodic comedy about a day in the lives of the employees and the owner, Mr. B, of a Los Angeles, California car wash (filmed at a Westlake car wash at the corner of Rampart Blvd. and 6th Street). Car Wash is a broad and scabrous comedy, in which African American working class and gay characters are depicted in a more forthright manner than was common at the time the film was made. It is a film about the spirit of community. (Wikipedia)
The soundtrack written by Norman Whitfield and performed by Rose Royce is awesome. The album was a major success (three Billboard R&B top ten singles) and the "Car Wash" title track was a #1 hit and one of the biggest hit singles of the Disco era.
Non-stop music, cool guest stars (incl. Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich and three lovely ladies (Antonio Fargas as Lindy not included )
A real slice of the 1970's--great film. Michael Schultz also directed "Cooley High," which I think is even better.
