A week long tribute to Pam Grier
I enjoyed her movies. She was a woman that could fight and hold her own against the men in the films. She was my action hero.
She "became a staple of early 1970s movies playing big, bold, assertive women, beginning with Jack Hill's Coffy (1973), in which she plays a nurse who seeks revenge on drug dealers; her character was advertised as the 'baddest one-chick hit-squad that ever hit town!' In 1975, she starred in Sheba Baby- a Chicago private detective returns back home to Louisville, Kentucky, to help her father fight mobsters and in 1974, she starred in Foxy Brown- she takes a job as a high-class prostitute in order to get revenge on the mobsters who murdered her boyfriend."*
