Summary: How about ME?
Comment: 'Am I Black enough for you?' That was the question the Right, Righteous, Reverend, Deke O'Malley asked of the people. I saw this when I was 14, in 1971 and have never forgotten it. Calvin Lockhart, Raymond St. Jacques, Godfrey Cambridge and the Drop-Dead Gorgeous...Judy Pace, made me sit in the State Theater and watch this at least 4 times running...right on my brother...Right On!!!

The cameo by Redd Foxx gave it a sense of legitimacy too, because as cool as he was, he was comfortable playing a junk man...didn't forget where he came from.

Summary: Semi-bore
Comment: Pauline Kael was raising this film to a pedestal, claiming that it was a milestone of a so called "soul movies", exited with its humor and gusto.
Well, one thing is sure: Afro-American ladies are really good-looking,
guys are kinda interesting, there is some announcement of a
"Super fly - Shaft" rocking gimmicks, but overall,it is semi-bore movie
despite some surprising scene-solutions I've never seen before.
Look up for the sequel, "Come Back, Charleston Blue", that one shakes the floor.
Three stars with effort.

Summary: Very funny movie.
Comment: One of those 70's classic films that is a must have in your dvd collection. It would be nice if they could release the sequel to this movie. "Come Back Charleston Blue" was just as good. I wonder what are they waiting on?

Summary: It Got Soul!
Comment: Cotton Comes To Harlem is a movie produced in the time of Black Exploitation films. Fortunately, this movie doesn't fit the mode. It got a lot of soul and laughter. A very good cast.
