I could write a poem about Pam Grier. I could write a tone poem. A symphony. An opera. A Stockhausen style 29 hour long, seven opera cycle, a magnum opus. Pam is intelligent, beautiful, strong, deadly, sexy. And she can dance. She should be the biggest film actress in the world. As it is, she is just the coolest.

Shots taken from the title sequence for 'Foxy Brown' (d. Jack Hill, 1974), in which Pam takes down a drugs syndicate using guns, knives, fire and, of course, herself, the deadliest weapon of all. From the very first minute, the message and purpose of the film is quite clear: 'look at her - just look at her - she's INCREDIBLE'.
