...We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound "fine"?

"I'll show ya how to handcuff lightning, chain thunder, walk through a graveyard and put the dead at a wonder." - Yaphet Kotto.

Kotto plays Daddy Fox and he's the master with the scam. Rudy Ray Moore plays Glitterin' Goldie and he also runs the hustle. This is the same hustle that Mr. Orange lays on Joe in Reservoir Dogs. The trailer below reveals this.

Rudy Ray is only in this film for a couple of scenes, but he is in it long enough to notice his fucked up afro-like chest hair.
There's more jive talkin' in this flick that any other of its time. 70's ghetto slang all up and down this mofo. Ebonics ain't got shit on jive talkin'. Can you dig it?

This trailer says it all my brotha.

Yaphet Kotto's role in this film really gives you an idea of the scope of his acting skills. He doesn't play the role everyone would expect him to do. He's a smooth criminal w/ a flair!

This is pre-"ROOTS" & "Alien" so he wasn't a big star yet but already had several excellent Blaxploitation films under his belt. Namely:

"The Liberation of L.B. Jones"
"Across 110th Street"
"Truck Turner"
"Friday Foster"
& "Drum" from the same year.

His role as General Idi Amin in "Raid on Entebbe" is another great example of how versatile he is & can give you an idea of what Forest Whitaker was up against preparing for his role in "The Last King of Scotland".

"Monkey Hu$tle" also has one of the most cameo-filled casts of all Blaxploitation cinema from Rosalind Cash ("Cleopatra Jones" & "Omega Man") to the aforementioned Rudy Ray Moore.

If you don't know about this shit already, check it!

I don't know what I like most about this blog - Tommy's entries or L1F3's responses.
