Uptown Saturday Night is a 1974 comedy-film written by Richard Wesley, and directed by Sidney Poitier. Poitier also stars in this film, along with Bill Cosby and Harry Belafonte.

While the two are at the party, the club is robbed. The masked bandits steal all of the patrons' loot, including Steve's wallet.
