Man, Fred Williamson starred in so many of these blaxploitation flicks during the era. Take a gander at the man's IMDB resume, and you'll find about 20 films with titles like Boss Nigger, Black Ceasar, Black Eye, and Mean Johnny Barrows. And the write-ups for each reads about the same.
If I had the will and the courage, I would participate in a Fred Williamson 70s marathon - watch every film he made in that decade, summarize and critique on this blog... or my podcast.
I don't think so... I'll leave that up to somebody else.
Never seen The Legend Of Nigger Charley above; although I've certainly heard of it.
Quick facts: It's the story of a trio of escaped slaves, headed by Fred Williamson as Nigger Charley.
It was followed by two sequels, The Soul of Nigger Charley and Boss Nigger. And based on those successive follow-ups, one could suggest that Charley moved up in the world.
The film was renamed The Legend of Black Charley for broadcast television. I'm surprised it actually screened on television. With that in mind, surely it couldn't be that bad, could it?
