Synopsis
The highly influential blaxploitation film COTTON COMES TO HARLEM spawned the beginning of the blaxploitation action boom in 1970 by delivering a refreshingly different detective action story utilizing humor, impactful drama, and most refreshingly, a lot of soul. This picture became a milestone in blaxploitation filmmaking and influenced many of its successors during this important decade in film history.

Two black cops in Harlem suspect a preacher's back-to-Africa campaign is a
swindle, and this leads to a host of adventures trail-blazed by fast, tough repartee. COTTON featured the relatively unknown actor Redd Foxx, as well as solid performances by Godfrey Cambridge, Raymond St. Jacques, and Calvin Lockhart. Based on the book by Chester Himes, the signature combination of fast-paced adventure, sheer comedy, and spectacular shootouts and chase scenes make this classic blaxploitation.
