Description by OLDIES.com:

She's the ultimate tough and sexy heroine. She's "Soul Cinema" superstar Pam Grier, and whether delivering her justice with a shotgun, a razor or just her bare hands, she doesn't miss a beat in this "smashing, no-holds-barred tale of retaliation" (Variety)! Nobody ever commandeered the screen quite like Pam Grier, and Coffy "couldn't be better! [It's] one of the most entertaining movies ever made" (Quentin Tarantino)!

Grier is Coffy, nurse by day and avenging angel by night. When she discovers that her little sister has been doped up -- and freaked out -- by a greedy drug pusher, she not only puts an end to his miserable days, but she vows to follow his trail of corruption up to the top -- the very top. But what Coffy doesn't realize is that all is not as it seems -- and that the leafy green behind the pushers' scene just may come from someone she knows!

Product Description:

Pam Grier rocketed to stardom as the queen of blaxploitation films with this big cult hit. Director Jack Hill, who had launched her film career two years earlier with THE BIG DOLL HOUSE, here casts Grier as a hardworking nurse out to avenge her smack-addicted 11-year-old sister by waging a one-woman war on Los Angeles drug dealers. Better believe she can do it, too. After her cop friend Carter (William Elliott) is beaten up for not being crooked, Foxy decides to go undercover as a high-class Jamaican prostitute for King George (Robert Doqui), a super mack-daddy pimp with big-time heroin connections. There's a really memorable scene at a party, where Coffy battles King George's other prostitutes in a spectacular cat fight, and of course, lots of other slam-bang action is in the works as Coffy shoots, slashes and seduces her way to the top of the drug ring. Through it all, Grier keeps her character vulnerable and sweet, in a truly amazing performance. The rock-solid funk score is by Roy Ayers. Co-stars include Sid Haig, Allan Arbus, and Booker Bradshaw is Coffy's politician boyfriend. Hill and Grier re-teamed the following year with a sort-of-sequel, FOXY BROWN.
