CAR WASH is an earthy, irreverent but affectionate look at a typical day in a Los Angeles car wash. An ensemble piece which interweaves the lives of employees, customers and passersby. CAR WASH stars a gallery of gifted actors, most of whom are realatively unknown to movie goers, and spotlights an array of guest stars in vivid cameo roles, including George Carlin, "Professor" Irwin Corey, The Pointer Sisters, and Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich, a flamboyant Reverand who preaches the goodness of the dollar. CAR WASH may qualify as the world's first "disco" movie, Norman Whitfield's almost non-stop musical score has become a top selling album.
