FOXY BROWN (1974)
FOXY BROWN (1974).
A film by Jack Hill.
Cast: Pam Grier, Anthony Fargas, Peter Brown.
A sexy black woman, Foxy Brown, seeks revenge when her government agent boyfriend Michael is shot down by gangsters led by the kinky couple of Steve Elias and Miss Katherine. According to director Jack Hill this was originally intended to be a sequel to his Coffy, also starring Pam Grier, and in fact the working title of the film was “Burn, Coffy, Burn!”. However, American-International Pictures decided at the last minute it didn’t want to do a sequel, even though “Coffy” was a huge hit. That’s why it’s never said exactly what kind of job Foxy Brown has – “Coffy” was a nurse and since this was no longer to be a sequel, they couldn’t give Foxy Brown that job and didn’t have time to rewrite the script to establish just what kind of job she had. Filming took a total of 17 days. Director Hill specifically wrote the Foxy part for Pam Grier and insisted n casting her despite AIP studio’s objections. Jack Hill specifically wrote the part of Katherine Wall for Kathryn Loder.
