  • Disco Godfather, also known as The Avenging Disco Godfather, is a 1979 action film starring Rudy Ray Moore and Carol Speed, directed by J. Robert Wagoner and released by Transvue Pictures. Commonly considered a blaxploitation film, the plot centers on Moore's character, a retired cop who owns and operates a disco and tries to shut down the local angel dust dealer after his nephew gets "whacked out" on the drug. The Disco Godfather's trademark phrase is his encouragement of the disco patrons to "Put your weight on it, put your weight on it, put your weight on it!". The film also served as the debut of Keith David, who has an unbilled bit part as a patron in the nightclub, as well as the afore-mentioned Carry.
