Original Gangstas (1996)











Starring:
  • Fred Williamson
  • Jim Brown
  • Pam Grier

IMDB.com
Marvin Bookman is a small shop owner in Gary, Indiana, USA. After he sees a drive-by shooting of Laurie Thompson's son by a local gang, he gives up the license number of the car to the police. The gang doesn't like this so they go to the store and rough him up. Soon, John Bookman comes to town to set the wrong things right. With the help of Laurie and his old friend Jake, they attempt to take back the streets and show the new breed of gang members what the true originals can do.

Skin Game (1971)






































Starring:

Storyline
Posing as master and slave, likable swindlers Quincy (James Garner) and Jason (Lou Gossett) ride into backwater prairie towns in 1875. And after Quincy intones and Jason moans, Jason is sold to the highest bidder. Quincy later springs him loose and they split town, split the cash and head down the road to the next sucker. It's an effective scam for these smart and nimble schemers - until they cross paths with an equally clever con woman (Susan Clark) and an irate former customer (Edward Asner).

The Sheriff (1971)













Starring:

Storyline
It's an anti racist tale. The sheriff - Davis - makes an inquiry into a rape affair. And the rapist is a white man - Ross Martin himself, the mighty Wild Wild West Arthemus Gordon. His character is nearly as good as the one he had in EXPERIMENT IN TERROR. A nasty one. A f...racist you want to be punished. The study of characters is very good, and the acting too.
