Dir. Barry Shear. 1972, 102 mins. 35mm. With Anthony Quinn, Yaphet Kotto, Anthony Franciosa. Fueled by Bobby Womack’s haunting theme, directed by Barry Shear (Wild in the Streets) from a novel by a Channel 5 news cameraman, this farrago of corrupt cops, ghetto hustlers, and downtown mobsters is the least glamorous and most violent of Blaxploitation films—producer-star Anthony Quinn held its world premiere in Harlem, at the Loews Victoria, on 125th Street.
