It looks like with the upcoming release of Dolemite is My Name, videos on Rudy Ray Moore and his movies are popping up quite a bit on YouTube right now. This is a very good thing. I’ve long felt Moore never got the appreciation he deserved for busting his ass for years and producing some damn fine entertainment.
One of the better videos produced recently that I’ve seen has been the one by Cecil Trachenburg at GoodBadFlicks. It does a great job at condensing the life and work of Mr. Moore down to a very enjoyable half hour. If anyone has seen the trailer to Dolemite is My Name and wondered what it was all about, this is a great way to learn more about Rudy and his wonderfully dirty character before watching the biopic.
