Darktown Strutters aka Get Down and Boogie(1975)













Starring:
  • Trina Parks
  • Roger E. Mosley
  • Shirley Washington
  • Bettye Sweet
  • Stan Shaw
  • Frankie Crocker
  • The Dramatics
  • Frances E. Nealy

IMDb.com:
 Syreena must investigate the disappearance of her mother, Cinderella.
A series of wild complications follow.

As that was a little thin i took the liberty of adding this resumé from

TRASHPALACE.com:

 Here's an odd comedy that seems to have been overlooked a bit.
A bizarre fantasy / blaxploitation / social satire with a few soulful
musical numbers courtesy of The Dramatics! 4 female biker mama's riding
tri-hogs search Watts for queen biker Syreena's (Trina Parks) kidnapped
mother Cinderella. Turns out there's a racist fast-food magnate named
Cross (Norman Bartold who is intentionally made to be a dead ringer for
Colonel Sanders!). He has ties with the KKK (who also ride motorbikes!)
and has plans to clone himself using a bizarre birth machine!
The film does touch on a few social issues but the approach is so
satirical that it comes across as nothing you've ever seen!
For instance, the violence is enhanced with Hanna-Barbara-like cartoon
sound effects, and the police (including genre fave Dick Miller) are
portrayed as total stumbling dimwits who constantly screw up.

O.K. Part 4 is up and running now, truly sorry 'bout that. All Y'all that had gotten the previous three need only go for the green under thrashpalace to find it. The rest just do as usual :-)

Argh! I've been looking everywhere for this, but it seems there is ONLY a part 4. Can the first three parts be re-upped?

I know this is an old post, but I just saw this movie the other day at an exploitation marathon and I just have to have this! Is the download still available?
