Friday Foster (1975)


Based on the syndicated newspaper comic strip of the same name, Pam Grier (Foxy Brown and Coffy) stars as intrepid photojournalist Friday Foster. No sooner has she been warned by her boss that her personal involvement in the stories she’s shooting will not end happily, Friday witnesses the attempted assassination of a prominent African-American figure and the murder of a friend.

Why is Friday the target on the hit list? What does she know? Teaming with private detective Colt Hawkins (Yaphet Kotto, Across 110th Street and  Blue Collar), the search for answers will lead them to a startling and action-packed finale.

Directed by Arthur Marks (Class of ’74, Detroit 9000), based on his story, Friday Foster features supporting performances by Godfrey Cambridge (Watermelon Man, Cotton Comes To Harlem), Eartha Kitt (Boomerang, The Emperor’s New Groove), Carl Weathers (Rocky, Predator), and Scatman Crothers (Coonskin, Black Belt Jones).
