The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings (1976)

[Billy Dee Williams, James Earl Jones, Richard Pryor]

Tired of the slave-like treatment of his team's owner, charismatic star Negro League pitcher Bingo Long takes to the road with his band of barnstormers through the small towns of the Midwest in the 1930's.

During the opening credits, 75-year-old Jester Hairston, as Furry Taylor, juggles 3 baseballs for about 4 seconds, just outside the ticket window. He is seen again four minutes later, for a few seconds, still juggling. At 89 minutes, Hairston is also seen juggling 3 baseballs in a parade for about 15 seconds.
