Comedian Rudy Ray Moore dies

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Raunchy 1970's comedian Rudy Ray Moore, who played a flashy pimp in the 1975 movie Dolemite, has died in Akron from diabetes complications. He was 81.

Gerald Moore says his brother died Sunday evening. Services are planned in Akron and Spokane, Wash., where most of his family lived.
