Description

Blu-ray. The brutal assault at the hands of a racist cop will inform the life of Tommy Gibbs (Fred Williamson, Hammer), who will grow up to become the reigning head of Harlem's black mafia in Black Caesar. Establishing a mob empire that challenges the New York mafia's stronghold on the city, Tommy will prove himself a worthy opponent and a natural born enemy. His volatile romance with chanteuse Helen (Gloria Hendry, Live and Let Die) will set in motion a series of deadly events that the self-proclaimed criminal kingpin, the Black Caesar, may not escape. Larry Cohen (Hell Up In Harlem), working from his own script, directs the blaxploitation film Black Caesar that co-stars Art Lund (Bucktown), Val Avery (Donnie Brasco) and D'Urville Martin (Sheba, Baby), featuring a score by James Brown.
