Foxy Brown Officially Announced

Posted May 22, 2013 01:51 PM by Webmaster

Arrow VideoBritish distributors Arrow Video have officially announced and detailed their upcoming standard and SteelBook Blu-ray editions of Jack Hill's landmark Blaxsploitation classic Foxy Brown (1974), starring Pam Grier, Antonio Fargas, and Peter Brown. The two Blu-ray editions will be available for purchase online and in shops across the United Kingdom on June 24th.

When Foxy Brown's undercover-agent boyfriend is gunned down on the orders of evil drug kingpins, she stops at nothing to exact a thrillingly brutal revenge. This is one of the all-time great Blaxploitation films, pulling out all the stops at a time long before anyone had thought of political correctness.

After linking her boyfriend's murder to a so-called "modelling agency", Foxy poses as a prostitute to infiltrate the company, saving fellow black women from a life of drugs and sexual exploitation in the process.

Pam Grier was given the role of a lifetime as the street-smart yet intensely sexy Foxy, modelling a stupendously varied range of Seventies threads while righteously kicking villainous white butt at every opportunity.

With an incredible supporting cast, a suitably funkadelic soundtrack and just the right balance of sex and violence, Foxy Brown is still, undisputedly, the meanest chick in town.

Director-approved Special Features:
  • Restored High Definition presentation (1080p), on Blu-ray for the first time in the world!
  • Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
  • Original Uncompressed PCM Mono 2.0 Audio.
  • Audio commentary with director Jack Hill.
  • "From Black and White to Blaxploitation" – Actor Sid Haig speaks about his long and influential friendship with Jack Hill.
  • "A Not So Minor Influence" – An Interview with Bob Minor, the first African-American member of the Stuntman's Association, and co-star of Foxy Brown.
  • "Back to Black" – Legendary actors Fred "The Hammer" Williamson (Black Caesar) and Austin Stoker (Sheba Baby, Assault on Precinct 13), alongside Rosanne Katon (Ebony, Ivory, and Jade) and film scholar Howard S. Berger speak about the enduring popularity of the Blaxploitation film.
  • Photo gallery of behind-the-scenes and publicity images.
  • Original Theatrical Trailer.
  • Trailer Reel – Trailers for all the major works by Jack Hill including Foxy Brown, Coffy and Switchblade Sisters.
  • Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by The Red Dress.
  • Collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by Josiah Howard, author of Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide, a new interview with Pam Grier by Jack Hill biographer Calum Waddell, illustrated with original archive stills and posters.

Is this region free? Arrow videos usually are but this one (that I saw at least) doesn't specify.
