ACROSS 110TH STREET (1972)

Yaphet Koto is Lieutenant William Pope who is partnered with racist Captain Frank Mattelli played by Anthony Quinn. The two are tracking down three suspects who killed seven people in the heist of $300,000 from a mafia owned bank. Gritty action and a smart plot plus, you get an early glimpse of the duo that would eventually have a 70?s variety show called KOTO & QUINN’S GIGGLE HOUR. This gets lumped into the blaxpoitation genre which isn’t a bad thing, it’s more of a crime film though.

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
