Boss Nigger (1975)































Starring:
  • Fred Williamson
  • D'Urville Martin
  • William Smith


IMDb.com
Anyways, Boss Nigger is about revenge. Revenge against the white folk. The Boss (Fred Williamson) and his trusty sidekick (D'Urville Martin) are former slaves turned bounty hunters, killing any wanted white men for money. When they stumble across a corrupt small town that is constantly suffering from a local gang run by Jay Clayton (William Smith), it is up to the Boss to kick some serious behind and save the town from its oppressors. Powerful in its execution, Boss Nigger keeps you at the edge of your seat; the ending alone is one of the best endings ever made. With gunfights that leave you breathless, and a complicated romance that will keep you crying till the credits roll. The plot is cohesive, never confusing. The acting is perfection. And the music is grandiose.

Additional Notes..There can be no link to a soundtrack review because as far as we are aware it hasn't been officially released. Comeback Shane has by watching the credits closely and browsing deep into the net deduced the following:
The theme song "Boss Nigger" is sung by an artist called Terrible Tom who has a name for himself on the northern soul circuit. The label We Produce is a subsidiary of Stax records. Funkback can Further add that Stax went bankrupt in 1975 which may explain the absence of this soundtrack. We can only hope that some promo copies of the theme song single were pressed and may surface somewhere.

D'urville is Ubiquitous in Blaxploitation movies. He's with Williamson in Blind Rage (1978), Death Journey (1976), The Soul Of Nigger Charley (1973), Black Ceasar & Hell Up In Harlem (Sequel) (1973), Hammer (1972),The Legend Of Nigger Charley (1972). So They're tight allright! The Nigger Charley movies probably inspired the Boss Nigger movie in the first place. I look upon them as a trilogy of sorts with all their anachronisms.

On another note check the shining green word "Boss Nigger" in the post real closely for some great sounds courtesy of my man Comeback Shane who noticed in the credits that it says the vocals are by a 'Terrible Tom' and the We Produce records and tapes it came on were distributed by Stax inc.

He furter adds that he could hardly find anything on this artist but he did find this...
