BLACK CAESAR

Assistive Listening T Hearing Loop
BLACK CAESAR

Part of Music City Mondays: Blaxploitation.

Cult auteur Larry Cohen’s LITTLE CAESAR-inspired take on the well-worn story of one man’s rise through the ranks of New York’s criminal underworld tracks Harlem’s Tommy Gibbs (Fred Williamson) as he grows from an idealistic youth into the hardened head of a criminal empire. Initially commissioned by Sammy Davis Jr. as a potential typecast-breaking post-Rat Pack starring vehicle, the film went on to American International Pictures who replaced him with Williamson. A tremendous commercial success upon its release, the film spawned a sequel (HELL UP IN HARLEM). Featuring the first soundtrack recorded by the Godfather of Soul himself, Mr. James Brown.
