J. Robert Wagoner directs the 1979 blaxploitation-martial arts classic Disco Godfather. Rudy Ray Moore stars as Tucker Williams, an ex-cop and resident DJ at the nightclub Blueberry Hill Disco. When his nephew Bucky (Julius J. Carry III) gets mixed up with drugs, Tucker is motivated to start some violence. With the help of plucky Noel (Carol Speed), Tucker takes on major angel dust dealer Singer Ray (James H. Hawthorne). Also memorable are the Disco dance production numbers in amazing sparkly costumes, the hallucinogenic PCP segments, and the repeatable catch phrases.
