This film and They Call Me Mister Tibbs! (1970) are notable as among the first sequels to a color cop movie, long before the first sequel to Dirty Harry (1971) came out. Even more remarkable, both of these films featured African-American protagonists. See more »

I have seen and own this movie and think it's a "classic". I absolutely love the film from the actors, story and especially the soundtrack to it.
For anyone that may have influence or knows someone who does in regards to this film, I would ask or even implore you to make this film available on DVD!!! I have been waiting for years for this to become available on DVD and it hasn't up to this point. I tell you that I will be one of the first in line to get it. Willie Dynamite was just released a few months ago and it was made, roughly, sometime after Charelston Blue I believe. Please bring it out on DVD. VHS is cool, but...
Anyway, love the movie, and would definitely recommend it to anyone to enjoy.
BTW, was/is there a soundtrack available as well? That's probably on a tape and not a CD huh? LOL!!! Please respond.
