Behind The Character: Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore.— Ruth E Carter (@iamRuthECarter) October 22, 2019
Dolemite Is My Name is my 6th film working w/ Eddie Murphy. This film was a passion project for Eddie and he was also an executive producer, so it was very unique experience. I felt honored to design his look as Dolemite. pic.twitter.com/K1hjxNllUt

I always enjoy following Ruth E Carter as she works on a period film. She is so generous to share the behind the scenes. As a period film enthusiast getting a behind the scenes look at costumes and the general making of the film, is always a treat.
