Foxy Brown: Pam Grier

In this 1974 blaxploitation film, Grier portrays a true icon in African American cinema, Foxy Brown. After discovering the death of her government-agent boyfriend, Brown goes undercover to not only seek revenge but also to save another woman from a life of drug-abuse and prostitution. Always fierce and always foxy, Brown employs combat skills to fight her way to the truth–and she and her signature fro look great while kicking butt.
