Cotton Comes To Harlem

1970, Movie, R, 97 mins

One of the first of a wave of action comedies, not for delicate tastes. Ossie Davis made his directorial debut in this gaudy blaxploitation crime comedy, filmed on location in Harlem. St. Jacques and Cambridge are, respectively, Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, a pair of Harlem plainclothesmen investigating a "Back to Africa" campaign run by shady preacher Lockhart. A huge success, it inspired an inferior sequel (COME BACK, CHARLESTON BLUE) as well as a new genre for the 1970s.
Released: 1970 Rated: R Length: 97 mins
