Format:DVD
This could be subtitled "Pam in a Jam". These three black exploitation films from the 70's feature Pam Grier in top form and probably provided erotic dreams and inspiration for Quentin Tarrantino. The first of the set "Coffy" features Grier as kind of a superhero without the costume. She's an a nurse during the day time but at night turns puts people into the hospital. When Coffy discovers that her sister has been fed drugs by a local drug pusher, Coffy goes in for revenge only starting with the pusher. Ultimately she plans on going to the top and taking out the guy that heads the drug syndicate himself! Coffy quickly discovers that enemies are interchangeable with friends in this fun and often funny action adventure flick.

"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars at least the price is right November 30, 2005
Format:DVD
Well the best part about this set is that you can get Coffy and Foxy Brown cheaper than buying the single DVDs. Sheba Baby isn't that great of a film. It's a shame they didn't include Bucktown which while Pam is a supporting actor (as The Hammer's love interest), it's a great film. Or even complete the Pam on MGM DVDs with Friday Foster. What's wrong with giving the complete Fox in the box?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grier Box Set A Paradox December 20, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pam Grier was one of the most beautiful women to appear on the big screen, but the fact that she didn't establish mainstream appeal until she was nearly fifty illustrates the hardships faced by black actresses--particularly those who labored during the 70's so-called blaxploitation films.

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.
