Cotton Comes to Harlem (DVD)
Directed by Ossie Davis
Raymond St. Jacques
Directed by Ossie Davis
One of the most influential Soul Cinema pix ever to shoot onto the screen, Cotton Comes To Harlem spawned the Blaxploitation boom by delivering a "refreshingly different detective action yarn with soul and humor" (Cue) and an unbeatable mix of "humor and excitement!" (Los Angeles Herald-Examiner). Detectives "Gravedigger" Jones (Godfrey Cambridge) and "Coffin Ed" Johnson (Raymond St. Jacques) are on a case investigating a crooked Reverend (Calvin Lockhart) - a brother whose "Back to Africa" campaign is nothing more than a big scam. But when $87,000 of the Reverend's laundered cash gets stashed in a bail of cotton, Gravedigger and Coffin find they're not the only dudes suddenly interested in soaring cotton prices as they come up against the mafia, the police, black militants and street thugs in an all-out dash to nab $87,000 cash. One of the handful of films directed by acting great Ossie Davis (Gordon's War) with a top-notch supporting cast that includes Redd Foxx, Cleavon Little, J.D. Cannon, John Anderson and Eugene Roche.
