Episode 213 - Black Belt Jones and Black Gunn
Friend of the show, Scott Toomey, joins us to discuss Black Belt Jones and Black Gunn, two excellent and very different examples of the Blaxploitation era. There's a catch though, these are the first two he's ever seen!!
With the help of host Jon Cross, who's seen many many of the era's finest (and not so finest) films, they take each film step by step from the light, chop socky, Bruce Lee inspired fun of Black Belt Jones into the harder, grittier and a little slower, Black Gunn.
We also talk about stars Jim Kelly, Jim Brown, Bernie Casey, Martin Landau, Bruce Glover, Gloria Hendry, Scatman Crothers and more.
This finishes up our Black History Month examination of these fascinating and entertaining African American films from the Seventies and we strongly urge everyone to check more of them out over at the Brown Sugar streaming App.
