In 1975, a blaxploitation classic saw the light of day: Dolemite. The character of the flick was definately one of the inspirations for Black Dynamite and also for a little segment in Kentucky Fried Movie. Snoop Doog considers Dolemite a huge influence of his own career.
In 1976, the sequel The Human Tornado was shot. It has been available as Blu-ray/DVD combo for many years now. Said release contains the uncut Original Version with English audio. In addition to that, the cut German Theatrical Version is also available in HD - incl. German audio. Basically, the German Version lacks footage at the night club: Some stand-up comedy (which was actually Rudy Ray Moore's occupation) and further announcements of the following performances.
