The great actor and comedian Rudy Ray Moore passed away from complications due to diabetes last night at the age of 71. Moore had released dozens of albums and appeared in a wide variety of films from the 1970's through today, but may be best remembered for the title role in the blaxploitation classic "Dolemite" and its sequel "The Human Tornado."
