"Foxy Brown" was originally conceived as a sequel to "Coffy" but when the director/writer Jack Hill realized he couldn't get the funds for a sequel he rewrote the film changing minor elements of the plot and characters names. Once again Grier stars (she could be playing Coffy instead of Foxy in this film and it wouldn't matter). Foxy (Grier) thinks she's found the man of her dreams when she falls in love with an undercover narcotics cop. When he's murdered she goes out for justice and swears she'll take down the crime syndicate that assassinated him. Foxy goes undercover playing the role of a high priced call girl to find out who was behind the murder of her boyfriend and exact revenge!
"Sheba Baby" features Grier as the title character Sheba Shayne a private eye who runs to aid her father. It seems he's being muscled by the mob and they are trying to take over his loan business. When the mob try and take her out with a car bomb, Sheba is out for mob blood. Packing a colorful array of guns, she takes them out one by one.Read more ›
The bonus DVD is pretty forgettable. It doesn't include Pam talking about her early days. Just modern rappers doing a VH1 bit of jabbering.
But if you're curious about Pam and you want a deal, this box is for you.
The films here show Grier in all of her gun-toting and "Super Mama" glory, and in her birthday suit, as she was never bashful about flaunting some of the most eye-popping full frontal nudity in film history.
Blaxplotation films were formulaic statements in the era of the "Black Power" movement. These low-budget cash cows followed the story line of black person wronged by "the man," black relies on ineffective (white) police to do their jobs, and when that fails--or the cops show a lack of enthusiasm in solving the case--black victim becomes black superhero and takes things into his/her own hands. That's when the bullets begin flying.
All three films in this set, "Sheba, Baby," "Foxy Brown," and "Coffy" follow this same formula with ever so slight variation.
While Grier is both fun and alluring, her presence in these films is a celluloid tragedy, as it appears obvious that had she been given the chance, she would have been one of the all-time greats.
If you like Pa Grier or are just curious about her movies - then get this one. All movies are excellent in condition and really a great buy.
Makes a great gift!!
