Rudy Ray "Dolemite" Moore Dies at 81 


Rudy Ray Moore, one of the pioneers of blaxpoitation films, has died from complications from diabetes. He was 81.

One of Moore's most memorable movies is "Dolemite," a film he self-produced about one of the most beloved characters from his stand-up acts.

I particularly enjoy blaxpoitation films for all their grittiness and raw energy, and Mister Rudy Ray Moore is certainly one of the icons of the genre.
