Jim Brown Fans Tune into Bounce TV Tonight
If the summer heat is too much to deal with, Brown Sugar Saturday night has you covered with a blaxploitation triple threat. Starting with Black Gunn (1972), Take a Hard Ride (1975 with Fred Williamson), and I Escaped from Devil's Island (1973).
Jim Brown has a lot in common with my favorite, Bernie Casey, as they always played solid characters on screen and got their start playing professional ball. Of tonight's trifecta, I recommend Black Gunn. It's filmed in L.A.'s west side, has an interesting plot, and the leading lady is the late Teresa Graves of Get Christie Love.
Hopefully, you'll enjoy the little bonus I threw in at the top, 1967's Riot.
