Comment

Richard Pryor's first film was going to be "Uncle Tom's Fairy Tales," about a white man on trial for raping a black woman. Yikes. Not surprisingly, the film, directed by Penelope Spheeris, never saw release, and it may be gone forever. Pryor's first wife apparently shredded most of the only negative, although a small bit of it appeared in a 2005 retrospective when the Directors Guild of America honored Pryor. This led to Pryor suing Spheeris and his own daughter, Rain. The suit was still pending when Pryor died in 2005.

Steven Schirripa wrote "A Goomba's Guide to Life." You may remember him as the goomba Bobby Bacala on what TV show?

A) "All in the Family"

B) "Everybody Loves Raymond"

C) "Jersey Shore"

D) "The Sopranos"

Previous answer: Look back in anger.
