    One of the most memorable scenes in Willie Dynamite is the “Pimp Council” scene.  All of the major players in the city meet to discuss their future as pimps.  The head of the council, Bell (portrayed by Roger Robinson), gives an overly dramatic speech about how they need to unite to survive the pressure they’re getting from the police.
