    In the world of 1930s Negro League baseball, a spirited team of renegade players travels around the Midwest looking for that one big score. Richard Pryor, Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones star as three barnstorming ballplayers who take on prejudice and their own League's unfair rules while stealing cars, food and home base - anything to prove that they're the best team around. It's a showdown of brains over booby traps and sportsmanship over racial segregation as Bingo Long's All-Stars swing their way to a winning season.

    This is a funny, well acted look at the Negro Leagues and barnstorming before the integration of Major League Baseball. Many of the details in the movie are based on historical facts. There really was a woman owner in the Negro Leagues, for example. More to the point, the movie correctly illustrates some of the greed and corruption within the league, as well as some of the issues the players faced. It also captures the experience of a barnstorming club and the often clownish antics players sometimes had to engage in to attract attention. It also is a pretty funny movie starring Billy Dee Williams as a Satchel Paige-esque pitcher who's supremely self-confident, so much so that he throws his world famous "Invite Pitch" to hitters without players manning the field. James Earl Jones is a treat as Leo Carter, a hard-hitting, no nonsense catcher. Look for Richard Pryor in a smaller, but funny role as Charile Snow, who's convinced he can break into the Majors by pretending to be Cuban as Carlos Nevada. This is a great movie no baseball fan should miss.

    Bingo Long is a fun movie, describing a bitter period in American History, and American Baseball History.

    The story is based on the true story of Jackie Robinson, Sachel Paige, and Josh Gibson. Bingo Long is based on Sachel Paige, and Esquire Joe is loosely based on Jackie Robinson. The movie is fun, and it delves into the relationships of the black players and the Negro League owners. They only touch gently on the racial issues, and focus more on the greed of the Negro League owners. Billy Dee Willims (Sachel Paige) and James Earl Jones (Josh Gibson) are real and fun. But at the end of the day, they are both bitter about being excluded from the "White Only" major leagues.

    This fictionalized account of the Negro League baseball of the 1930s just before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier is based on real incidents and persons. It is fast-paced, at times very funny and at times tragic. Racism, politics in the Negro League, and much about the African community at that time combine with a terrific cast to make this movie entertaining and educational. Billy Dee Williams is charismatic as always, James Earl Jones is terrific, we wish we could see more of Richard Pryor, but the whole cast turns in an excellent performance. A rich set of special features is included.

    The entire life and the atmosphere of The Negro League baseball era was brilliantly portrayed from the barnstorming perspective. The script was a bit of a stretch at times but the superb acting by Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones kept you waiting for each scene. The language used was authentic as were the town attitudes. It contained some athleticism in parts that was also very truthful.

    Many of the stories told by old timers who played in the Negro Leagues come alive in this film. Lots of legends and tall tales from that time take on added dimension ("Who will hit my invite pitch?") and Billy Dee Williams seems near perfect if not, in fact, perfect as Bingo Long. Performances by James Earl Jones and Richard Pryor in particular just sing in harmony with Williams. This may be fiction but there are many truths told here. The modern day, overpaid, spoiled brats of the MLB who like to stand at the plate and watch the flight of their home runs before deigning to move around the bases probably wouldn't have survived the harsh realities of the Negro League baseball road. I wonder what Josh Gibson would have made of this film?
