A stone cold 1970s classic, Car Wash charts a day in the life of Los Angeles’ DeLuxe Car Wash. A musical of sorts, driven by the wall-to-wall sounds of the fictional KGYS radio, the film bounces around a large ensemble of employees and customers, including Pryor’s Daddy Rich, an evangelist for the almighty dollar in a solid gold limousine.
