N.p. American International Pictures [AIP], 1974. Two vintage photographs from the 1974 film, "Consortium D'Achats Audiovisuels" stamp on the verso.

A constant barrage of car chases and bloody shootouts, Isaac Hayes plays a pimp-killing bounty hunter on whom the tables are turned, when one of his mark's girlfriends puts a hit out on him. He must outsmart Yaphet Kotto's intimidating gangster or be killed himself. Hayes provides the soundtrack, and "Star Trek's" Nichelle Nichols makes her only 1970s feature appearance as a foul-mouthed whorehouse madam. Released as a double feature with the inimitable "Foxy Brown."

Shot on location in Los Angeles.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, light curling, one with paperclip impression on top left.

Parish and Hill 224.
Howard, Blaxploitation Cinema, p. 37-38, 40, 59, 217-218.
