  • Coffy/Friday Foster

    Includes:Coffy (1973), MPAA Rating: R Friday Foster (1975), MPAA Rating: R Coffy Writer-director Jack Hill (Spider Baby, Switchblade Sisters) managed to beat Death Wish to the screens by a year with this violent tale of a citizen touched by crime and deciding to fight back. Her little 11-year old sister is a hopeless addict, the police can't help, and poor Nurse "Coffy" Coffin (Pam Grier) has no choice but to take the law into her own hands. Posing as a Jamaican prostitute, Coffy infiltrates the lairs of pimp King George (Robert DoQui) and kingpin pusher Vitroni (Allan Arbus). Eventually, after her childhood sweetheart is beaten into a coma and she finds out her politician-lover (Booker Bradshaw) is involved, Coffy kills everyone with a shotgun. However, by having a black woman named Coffy get injected with a sugar mixture (the crooks think it's heroin), one can only imagine the filmmakers cackling about Coffy with cream and sugar. In fact, the original ad line promised "Coffy...she'll cream you!" ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide Friday Foster In this blaxploitation film, statuesque action star Pam Grier is cast as comic-strip heroine Friday Foster. A freelance photographer with an insatiable thirst for adventure, Friday unearths a conspiracy to assassinate several prominent black political leaders. The film also features Yaphet Kotto, Godfrey Cambridge, Eartha Kitt, and, as a "Godfather" type, Jim Backus. Created by Jim Lawrence and Jorge Longaron, the original Friday Foster cartoon strip ran from 1970 to 1974, one of the few collaborations of its kind between an American scriptwriter and a foreign artist. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
