Full synopsisEdit

Fred tags along to a movie casting call that Lamont and Rollo hope will make them respected black actors, not suspecting this film is blue. How did Lamont (Demond Wilson) and Rollo (Nathaniel Taylor), and then Fred, almost end up starring in a porno film? Aunt Esther (LaWanda Page) wants to know the whole sordid story -- especially since she had to use her own money to bail our heroes out of the slammer. This was the final episode of Sanford and Son's second season.
