COTTON COMES TO HARLEM is the adaptation of Chester Himes' 1965 novel of the
same title and stars Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques as his
two Harlem police detectives "Gravedigger" Jones and "Coffin" Ed Johnson
respectively. Their motto: "[We] may have broke some heads, but we ain't
never broke no promise." Jones and Johnson are on the trail of "Reverend"
Deke O'Malley (Calvin Lockhart. O'Malley is funding a "Back to Africa"
cruise by taking donations from the good people of the 'hood. However,
before he can
make his getaway, a robbery breaks out and the money, hidden in a bale of
cotton, gets lost in Harlem. This sends the cops, O'Malley and the robbers
on a wild search through the New York area for the stolen loot. Redd Foxx
appears as a junk dealer (two years before SANFORD AND SON) who holds the
key to the fate of the money.
Oddly enough, the movie is less rough then Himes' novel (which had quite a
bit of rough language and sex in it), yet received an R rating back then.
It would hardly register as a PG-13 today. COTTON COMES TO HARLEM should be
seen to see the true origins of the genre known as
"blaxploitation" (black exploitation movies).
COTTON is quite an enjoyable action romp. It is especially light compared
to the later "blaxploitation" films that followed it.
