In a role that turned her overnight into the foremost 70s blaxploitation cult priestess, Pam Grier (of Jackie Brown fame) is the explosive Coffy; nurse by day, the conscientious hospital worker picks up her gun by night and eliminates the inner city drug kingpins who got her sister hooked ? treating viewers to generous flashes of skin in the process. Blaxploitation cinema receives its first female star, Roy Ayers provides a superb soundtrack and legendary director Jack Hill takes the wheel in a sleek, sexy revenge film that makes Superfly and Shaft seem like harmless kids’ movies. The rest is history.
