Today's Question

Name the movie and the figures appearing in the remake

This movie came  out in 1977 with Bill Cosby and Sidney Poiter.  It is about "Clyde Williams and Billy Foster are a couple of blue-collar workers in Atlanta who have promised to raise funds for their fraternal order, the Brothers and Sisters of Shaka. However, their method for raising the money involves travelling to New Orleans and rigging a boxing match. Using hypnotism, they turn the scrawny underdog into a super-confident fighting machine. They bet heavily on him, he wins easily, and they return to Atlanta with their money. All is fine until the gangsters conned by these two figure out what happened show up in Atlanta with a grudge. Now Williams and Foster have to rig the fight again so the gangsters can get their money back or they'll be killed. Can they do it again...?"*

  1. I don't recognize the movie, but I think your Shaquille O'Neil doll in the center has an infectious smile. The corners of my mouth went up when I saw his bright smile. I look forward to finding out who the Urkel-look-alike is on the right of Shaq.

  2. This movie was one of the few that Jimmy Walker appeared in during Good Times. Thanks.
