This week I watch a film I never watched before, Friday Foster starring Pam Grier. It's the story of a former model, turned photographer who gets caught up in a political conspiracy while on assignment. She may be in over her head, but she's no damsel in distress, and with a little help from a tough P.I., and the subject of her story, she may derail a plot to change the course of American politics. Once again I'll break down all the good, and bad, of this Blaxploitation classic along with trivia about the film, where you've seen these actors before, and more.
Friday Foster started as a comic strip in the newspapers, one of the only centered around a female, African-American, professional, before coming to life in theaters. With Pam Grier, Eartha Kitt, Yaphett Kotto and more this is one star studded film you need to see. So join me every Wednesday, here at Celluloid Fever Dreams where the films you never heard of, just might become your new favorite.
