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.

The screenplay for the film is inspired by the legacies of real life Harlem gangsters Bumpy Johnson and Frank Lucas. The character of Joe (the fake Charleston Blue) resembles the actual Frank Lucas, who was a major drug dealer around Harlem and Newark, during the time the film was made. There are numerous parallels between the Charleston Blue persona and Frank Lucas, who was known for his "Blue Magic" brand of heroin. See more »
I think the reason I really liked this movie so much is as a child, I remember seeing "Cotton comes to Harlem" on NBC and thought, wow, two black detectives who actually did detecting and didn't do much 'shuck and jiving'. They took their business protecting the streets and the black people of Harlem seriously. Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques are sorely missed! The movie, "A Rage in Harlem" was sooooo awful. Why can't somebody remake THAT, instead of remakes of fairly successful movies or comics or TV shows that were at the best, minor league (Dukes of Hazzard, BeWitched). Give me a break. Somebody will try to do a remake of the Jeffersons next!MY GOD!!!
