Sequel to Cotton comes to Harlem. Another bad influence is hitting Harlem and Gravedigger and Coffin Ed are the two cops who will stop it. Charleston Blue was a prohibition era black gangster, dead 4 decades. When he seems to have reappeared, once again slitting throats with his Blue straight edge razors, the two cops begin a complicated search for some answers. Written by

Charleston Blue, is one of my favorites. I just wish it got more recognition. Very entertaining..full of action together with the charm and wit of Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed. I enjoyed Cotton Comes to Harlem, but loved this one. The description says a sequel to Cotton..Harlem but it is more of a sequel of the rough but effective detective duo Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed. This movie definitely keeps you laughing, keeps you in suspense, but also delivers a powerful message about drugs in the black community. I too have been searching for the DVD and will be first in line to get it when it is released, I am confident it will be released and soon. This is one of the Soul Cinema movies that is a must have for my collection.
