I’m not sure that everybody (or even a majority) of people who read this blog are old enough to know who PAM GRIER is. But if you asked me to pick one movie star from any era who I’d like to go on a date with, it just might be Ms. Grier.
Pam Grier played the prototypical strong woman role in 70’s blacksploitation films back when women weren’t supposed to be strong. If BRETT KAVANAUGH pulled his alleged prep boy jock shit on Pam back in the day, she’d have probably cut his dick off before you could say Jack Robinson (now I’m really showing my age).
Ms. Grier labored in what I’d call the r & b world until QUENTIN TARANTINO signed her on to play the lead in JACKY BROWN, one of my all time favorite top ten films. It was then when crossover stardom became hers.
While watching and or/DVRing my usual Sunday night tv faire (The Deuce/a Columbo rerun), I found Jacky Brown on the Vice Channel. I can’t watch that movie enough. Pam slays – as a woman and an actress. If you’ve never seen this movie, go see it ASAP. Guaranteed if you’re reading this blog, you’ll love that film.
The night I was released from the Tombs and found myself without a dime or place to stay until the next morning (thank you, Manhattan Detention Center efficiency), it was my cousin Lynn who was home at 11:30 PM to provide me with a crash. Cousin Lynn is a 74 year-old corporate lawyer – and as smart and opinionated as they come. Her daughter is a vice president at MTV and both are big movie buffs. It’s pretty much all they talk about when the two get together.
Lynne’s second bedroom has been turned into a den now that her daughter is grown and married. So the den was where I crashed. In that room I found a 27″ retina display iMac and a 40″ flat screen tv. And on the table next to the flat screen was a DVD. One DVD. Guess what the title was! Yup! Jacky Brown. That should tell you something right there. I’m not sure what but still…you get the idea.
Pam has had an interesting love life to say the least. Her paramours include KAREEM ABDUL-JABAR (whose marriage proposal she turned down), RICHARD PRYOR, FREDDY PRINZE (who she also refused to marry), and WILT CHAMBERLAIN. How’s that for a who’s who?
Thanks to PORNHUB (of all sites), I embed a video montage of Pam’s nude and gun-toting scenes with a musical accompaniment so sublime that I opted to feature this video rather than many others which have her calling an old white trick a honky and a wet noodle. And if he sees a real man anywhere on his way out, she could use one! If you’re curious, that video will be easy to find once you click on the following link. Enjoy!
