Film Series: Cotton Comes to Harlem

1970. USA. Dir: Ossie Davis. With Godfrey Cambridge. 97 min.


This trailblazing Blaxploitation movie follows a tough-cop duo’s fight to bring a swindling preacher to justice. With on-location Harlem as their backdrop, they navigate an unjust system and a lively cast of con men, unafraid to crack jokes and be generally badass along the way.
