Description by OLDIES.com:

Moving (1988, 89 mins., Rated R): Comedy and screen legend Richard Pryor hits the comedy road in Moving, a good-time tale of a flustered suburbanite trying to relocate with his family from New Jersey to Idaho. Dave Thomas, Dana Carvey and Randy Quaid are among the comic ensemble in this movie that packs "a houseful of laughs" (V.A. Musetto, New York Post).

Greased Lightning (1977, 94 mins., Rated PG): Pryor has a driving ambition in Greased Lightning, the decades-spanning true story of Wendell Scott, who cracked the all-white world of stock-car racing, built cars from junkyard parts, endured taunts, overcame setbacks and won NASCAR and Grand National crowns. "There's not a more likable movie currently on view," Time reviewer Richard Schickel wrote about this biopic that marks Pryor's first lead film role.

Product Description:

MOVING: A transit engineer whose job change means he must move his reluctant family from New Jersey to Idaho finds complications aplenty arise from his wacko neighbors, unorthodox furniture movers, and unscrupulous employer.

GREASED LIGHTNING: Michael Schultz directs this charming bio-drama about America's first black stock car racing champion. Richard Pryor plays Wendell Scott, a wide-eyed young man who has always loved the thrill of speed. After marrying the gorgeous Mary (Pam Grier), Wendell begins to sell bootleg moonshine with his partner Pee Wee (Cleavon Little). But when Sheriff Cotton (Vincent Gardinia) finally tracks him down, a business proposition keeps him out of the slammer. Impressed with Wendell's accomplished driving skills, the sheriff asks him to try his hand at the racetrack, which will hopefully bring in the Black community as spectators. Both plans work. Soon, Wendell has committed to becoming a racing champion, and with the help of Pee Wee and the free-spirited Hutch (Beau Bridges), he becomes just that.
