Produced by Motown and based on the best-selling 1973 novel of the same name by William Brashler – considered to be one of the greatest sporting books ever written – The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings is set amid the segregated African American baseball league of the 1930s, and follows one enterprising team’s journey from humble beginnings to championship-winning success. Directed with flair by John Badham (Saturday Night Fever, Dracula), this classic feel-good comedy features a stellar cast including a pre-Star Wars pairing of Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones, and comedy legend Richard Pryor (Blue Collar).
