From Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him by David Henry, Joe Henry:

During that same engagement at the Village Gate, Richard [Pryor] caught the eye, and the fancy, of Shelley Winters who came backstage afterward and offered him a part in her upcoming movie Wild in the Streets.

From Unsinkable: A Memoir by Debbie Reynolds:
