BMFcast410 – Cotton Comes to Harlem – Chili Woman


Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970) begins our 7th annual Blaxploitation History Month! Gravedigger Jones (Godfrey Cambridge) and Coffin Ed Johnson (Raymond St. Jacques) are tracking down $87,000 in stolen cash, taken by the crooked Rev. Deke O’Malley (Calvin Lockhart). But if Deke doesn’t know where the money went, who does? We have a great time with the double- and triple-crosses, as well as the chemistry between the leads in this great detective story.

After the break we talk TV. A lot of TV, as Harlo revisits Cheers and Frasier, BJ checks in on The Good Place, Chuck marvels at ER in HD, Maki catches up on Better Call Saul and Atlanta, and Black Lightning sucks in Harlo.
