Andrew T.’s Late Late Late Show – Pam Grier Double Feature with “Foxy Brown” and “Coffy”

Tonight is a special treat.  Simply put, Pam Grier is a bad, bad woman.  Trust me, you do not mess with her. 

First up, Foxy Brown.  Watch for Antonio Fargas, better know as Huggy Bear in Starsky and Hutch.  He’s the one that gets shot.  Remember, just tell her who you want done and she’ll do the hell out of ‘em, because she’s got a black belt in bar stools.  Don't believe me?  See for yourself:

Next up, Coffy.  More Pam Grier going after the drug pushers.  This is the one where she puts razor blades in her afro.  She goes undercover as a prostitute to bust a pimp, gets in a fight with one of the other hookers who puts her hands in her hair, only to get her hands all cut up.  For proof, look for the blonde who’s looking at her hands screaming.  Also note the soundtrack, which was copped verbatim by Quentin Tarantino for another Pam Grier classic, and a personal favorite, Jackie Brown.  Please, enjoy the trailer to Coffy:
