FilmGordon Radio | Richard Wesley (Episode 313)

This week on the BIG show, Black Reel Award-winning playwright, and screenwriter, Richard Wesley will join us to talk about his revolutionary and historic career. Wesley wrote the first two of the Sidney Poitier/Bill Cosby buddy comedies, Uptown Saturday Night and Let’s Do It Again.

Wesley discusses how the “code” he learned in the streets of Newark helped him create his cult classics, working with Poitier, and how the hip-hop community has embraced the films.

We’ll also have entertainment news and reviews of the latest films, including Adrift, all on Episode 312 of Keeping It Reel with FilmGordon.
