 From the amazing soundtrack, thanks to star Isaac Hayes, to the gun-fighting violence to sweet pimp attire and bums fighting in the streets this one is one of my all-time favorite examples of classic blaxploitation. Not only is Hayes great in the starring role Yaphet Kotto does a great job of being a bad-ass. It plays sort-of like a black version of STARSKY AND HUTCH except that show didn't come out yet so maybe it's the other way around. Also of note is STAR TREK's Lieutenant Uhura(Nichelle Nichols) as a take-no-shit Madam who also dons some great 70s threads ans Scatman Crothers as an old-timey pimp. It's too bad Mr. Hayes didn't go on to star in more of these types of films but I guess he gave us some classic tunes instead.

Nice Italian painted poster!:
