Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1972. Collection of seven vintage color studio still photographs from the 1972 film, including five mounted as issued by the distributor on a presentation card.

Based on the 1970 novel by Wally Ferris, about two New York City cops who become involved in a bloody struggle between the Italian mob, the Harlem mob, and a pair of small-time crooks who have stolen thousands of dollars from both groups. Due to its setting in Harlem, this underrated crime drama is often lumped with other blaxploitation pictures of the era, when in truth it belongs to the great pantheon of gritty, violent police procedurals of the early 1970s—something of a New York City companion to Don Siegel's "Dirty Harry," released the year before.

Set in Harlem, shot on location in New York City.

Cards 10 x 8 inches. Presentation card 14 x 11 inches. Color studio still photographs and presentation cards Very Good plus.
