Big Time (1977)


A 1977 blaxploitation obscurity produced by Motown Films with an original soundtrack by Smokey Robinson! Small-time con man Big Time Eddie Jones hustles his way to the big payoff, while trying to stay one step ahead of insurance investigators, the FBI and the Mob. Think “Uptown Saturday Night” with a harder edge. Starring blaxploitation regular Christopher Joy and the lovely Jayne Kennedy, Big Time is about as rare as lost Blaxploitation films get.
