Cotton Comes to Harlem

Scroll down

Presented by Soul Jazz Records

Coffin Ed (Raymond St. Jacques) and Grave Digger Jones (Godfrey Cambridge), two plainclothesmen on the Harlem detail, are assigned to investigate the goings-on of suspicious local preacher Deke O’Malley (Calvin Lockhart), whose “Back to Africa” political movement turns out to be a scam to rob the community of their hard-earned cash, with the scam-money hidden in a bale of cotton.

Soul Jazz Records continue their series of blaxploitation screenings, with an introduction and live music in the bar.
